Spring Learning at Roman Way

Spring Learning


As teachers we wanted to create this page to share some of the learning and activities that we have completed at school while most of us are learning at home. We have had some wonderful weather which has allowed us to be creative and active around the school grounds.

Have a look below at some of the pictures of our Spring learning, maybe you could try something similar while you are learning from home. 

In one bubble in school this week, we designed and made our own roller coasters and wanted to share them with people at home. We even did some enterprise maths to work out how much they cost to build and what tickets should sell for to make a profit. Some aren't quite finished yet but they're looking fabulous!

Tree Planting

At school we had a lot of saplings that needed to be planted around our school grounds along with daffodil bulbs. Over the past few days we have made use of the good weather to plant the saplings around the school grounds. We had to think about the best place for the trees to grow in as well as using some of our Forest School skills to make sure that we used the tools correctly. We used bamboo canes to help the trees grow straight as well as using plastic sleeves to help stop wildlife eating them, hopefully we will all be able to see them grow through the school year!

Bird Feeders

Another bright afternoon meant that we could carry on with more outdoor learning and activities around the school and today we were thinking about the wildlife around school. We all love to hear and see the birds in the trees around our school and we used lard, bird seed, pine cones and string to make some bird feeders to hang around the school. It was a bit messy squishing the lard and birdseed together but we had great fun making them and then thinking carefully about the best branches and places to tie them so that the birds can eat them easily. Hopefully our feeders will help the birds  stay well fed, we think the birds in the bird box will find them really helpful!

Clay Faces

One day this week we made Green Men out of clay and bits that we could find around the school. We made this as it was a very sunny day and the Green Men used to live in the forests. You could try finding bits in your garden to make your own Green Men or you could draw a picture of what your Green Man would look like.

Nature Wands

This afternoon, we made Nature Wands with wool, feathers, sticks and pine cones from the wooded areas around us. We also tried to cast a spell using our wands and Mr A asked us what spell we would cast if we could cast any spell, here are some of our spells:

- A spell to get clothes from New Look

- A spell to make trees green again

-A spell to get lots of dogs

-A spell to change the weather

We think you could make your own Nature Wand at home, you could use different things from around the house if you can't go outside.

Let's Get Creative!!

This week we have been getting arty at school and being super creative.

We made rainbows for the year four classroom windows so that key workers on their way to and from work can see them and so that anybody on their daily exercise can see our rainbows and feel happy, why not make one for your window at home?

We made dreamcatchers and hung them in the year R area and they look amazing! We also got some paint out and made some great pieces of art, we even used our hands!!

Finally with Easter fast approaching we made some chocolate nests with chocolate and cupcake cases they look so yummy!!

Thank You Key Workers & Bear Hunt

Today at school we made a fantastic "Thank You Key Workers" banner and tied it to the school fence so that we can say thank you to all the key workers in our community for working hard.

We also got creative and made some rainbow art inside  and used some colourful tissue paper to make Easter Flowers.

We loved watching Michael Rosen's We're All Going on a Bear Hunt before we ventured off  outside in our wooded area to spot as many bears as we could, we took pictures of them in their hiding places.

Maybe you could put a bear or a teddy in one of your windows at home and see how many bears you can see on your daily walks with your families.

To finish off our day we did some more planting, but not trees this time! We put together some lovely flower pots with different plants to help make all areas of our school look lovely.

Week of 27th April

What a week at school! The weather was amazing at the start of the week...and then the rain came! But we managed to put the Forest School waterproof clothing and wellies on to adventure outside to do lots of things. Inside the school we did so many different activities as well, making sure that we kept our social distance. 

Have a look at some of the galleries of our activities below.....

Week Starting 4th May

Another week in school and another week of activities and learning, we have been really happy to see the return of the sun and no rain clouds this far!

We've had a busy week where we have again been creative with some salt dough and clay.

We made a range of different shapes with our hands and tools before allowing them to air dry so they would be ready for painting. Some of us have already managed to start painting ours and you can see our designs in the pictures.

We have also been learning about VE Day and have made some Spitfires and Union Flag bunting that we have hung in the Art area of the school to help celebratethe 75th Anniversary of VE Day on Friday. 

Why not see if your adults at home can help you find some VE Day bunting or flags to colour in and stick in your window to celebrate from home!

We hope you enjoy our pictures!


Today there was some amazing creativity at school as we made some decorations for a part of the school. We think it looks amazing and we're certain that you'll love it too!

I wonder how quickly you can work out where in the school our decorations are?

Rainbow Decorations (7th May)

75th Anniversary of VE Day- 8th May 

Another glorious day at school today where the weather was lovely and we were once again able to go outside in the school grounds to compelte some of our activities.

We have been learning a bit about VE Day and its importance in our recent history, we decorated some biscuits today to help celebrate the 75th Anniversary and at 11 o'clock we joined in with the minute silence to remember the importance of today and the sacrifices past generations made for our futures.

Have a look at our biscuit making and some of the other activities we completed today.....

Another week of sunshine and activities at school last week ( w/c 18th May). Have a look at some of our pictures of what we got up to while in school.
