Visit from the Harpenden Historical Society

Year 4 were visited by Katharine Robertson from the Harpenden Historical Society who delivered a very engaging workshop looking at artefacts from Victorian times. Looking at the artefacts, we had to guess what job a lady called Elizabeth Crane used to do. She lived in Harpenden in the year 1841 and we discovered she used to be a straw hat maker. What a fabulous morning!

 We do expect children to read regularly at home for 10 mins a day as this has a big impact on their learning.  Other  homework set is there to support and consolidate work in school.  We do not expect work at home to take longer than the maximum time given.  We understand that on occasion e.g. the family going away for the weekend that homework may not be completed on time.

Harpenden Walk - Thursday 6th June 2019
Year 4 had a fabulous day in the sunshine walking to Harpenden. The children completed a trail of the town and found out about Harpenden's past. We then enjoyed a lovely picnic and play in Rothamsted Park followed by a walk home along the old Nickey Line. Thank you to all adults to helped out on the trip - we were all exhausted on our return to school!!
