Bowker Vale, AD41. The fearsome 4M legion prepare for battle armed with weaponary forged by their very own hands! As you can see, we really got into the spirit of our Roman topic this week. We’ve designed and made Roman shields, taken part in Gladiator roleplay and we’ve even decided on what our Latin class motto is. In the end, we went for ‘4M Non Desistas’. Can you find out what the English translation is? Bonus points for anybody who also knows the Roman names for ‘shield’ and ‘sword’.
On Friday year 2 took part in an African drumming workshop. The children found out all about the drums, had a go at playing one themsleves and even did a performance at the end of the day to the year 1 children. It was great fun and everyone had a fantastic time and learnt lots of new skills.
Key stage two had a real treat this morning when they had a special visit from Colour Sergeant Mc Avoy. Colour Sergeant Mc Avoy told the children all about his career in the army. He also showed the children his vast kit. The children listened enthusiastically and had their many questions answered.
After the assembly, Colour Sergeant Mc Avoy spoke further to year six and they even got to wear some of his kit!
Here is a video of Cath’s dog Alfie at one of her training sessions! Alfie is a rescue dog who has now been trained to a really high standard!
Read this wonderful email I have just received – what a credit to our school you are Year 3! Thank you and well done!
Hello! Yesterday I was on a Manchester bound tram with my daughter. At one of the stops a class of children boarded the tram: we later learned they were a class of 7 year olds from Bowker Vale school on their way to an art gallery. I wanted to let you know how we enjoyed their company for the rest of the journey. What a well behaved, excited, pleasant group of children. A credit to their school and parents
