Year 4 visit the British Museum
Last week Year 4 travelled by coach to the British Museum. We visited Room 4 first to see the Rosetta Stone and spent 30 minutes investigating the exhibits. We then attended a 40 minute talk in the Clore Education Centre where our pupils were keen to answer questions on Ancient Egypt. On our way to the Egyptian galleries on the first floor of the Museum we walked through the Anglo-Saxon and Roman galleries – 2 topics studied when the pupils were in Year 3.
The Egyptian galleries on the top floor contained many examples of mummies brought back from Egypt. The favourite of many pupils were the mummified animals-especially the cats!

As part of Year 2’s topic ‘Turrets and Tiaras’ we visited Tonbridge Castle last week. It was a Motte and Bailey castle which has had a stone castle built on it since the 11th century. We explored the stone keep and learnt all about the features of a castle such as murder holes, the portcullis, arrow slits, and the Great Hall. We played some old castle games and climbed up the motte to keep a look out for any enemies! It was a fantastic trip, enjoyed by all.

Students from Years 7 & 8 took part in Bede’s School Galactic Challenge Day on Saturday 20 January. This is the third time the competition has been held and our participating students were excited about the brief they had received just 24 hours previously: they would be building a subterranean Martian research base in the year 2060. Our students were put into a company called Solaris along with students from three other schools. In total there were four competing companies totally just over one hundred year 7 & 8 students. After a welcome speech from the Deputy Head of Bede’s the students were whisked off by Sixth Formers who were to act as their CEO for Solaris. The accompanying staff were told clearly that we were not to help in any way – the students were on their own!
