Year 4 Love Where You Live Week

What a brilliant week!


The Year 4 children have walked the length and breadth of Weymouth to discover why we, and our visiting tourists, love Weymouth so much!


On Monday, the children were introduced to the infamous Dorset Knob biscuits. They then went to make their own - which were apparently rather delicious!


On Tuesday (4P) and Wednesday (4B), the children had the chance to go on board the RNLI lifeboat in the harbour. What an opportunity! The children and adults were so amazed by how big it was on board, what they carried on the boat and the 'trillion' fascinating facts that were shared by the RNLI volunteers. The chidlren were able to access all of the areas on the boat, which was simply sensational. 


The rest of the day the children did a harbour and people survey, to find out what makes Weymouth such a sought  after place. The children were excellent interviewers, displaying impeccable manners. The school was delighted to have received an email sent by the general public expressing what beautiful manners the children had. WOW! The harbour survey looked at the different boats that came into harbour and where they had come from. 


On Thursday, the  whole of Year 4 went on the history trail that has been set up n Weymouth. The children had to locate the places on the map, follow the direction, and finally, answer the quiz questions based on the historical paving slab found. With a delightful walk along the sea font and up through Lodmoor Park, we all agreed that we truly do Love Where We Live!
