On Monday 21st of November, Year four were transported back to a tribal village in Briton. They had the chance to try on Celtic clothing and were surrounded by artefacts from the time period. The village was then visited by a Roman centurion who invited the tribe to join the Empire and went on to show us a huge collection of items from the Roman era, some of which were original. We also got the opportunity to try on Roman armour, helmets and look at Roman shields and weapons. In the afternoon, we learnt Roman tactics and fought a battle!
On Thursday 10th November, Year 4 invited Imam Mohammed Abrar, from Exeter Mosque, to visit our school to talk to us about the Islamic faith. He was kind enough to allow Years 3, 5 and 6 to join us as well. It was a great opportunity for all of us to ask questions and learn about a religion none of us have a lot of experience of, including the staff, and clear up some common misconceptions. The children asked a lot of questions including about fasting during Ramadan and how Muslims pray when they are not in the Mosque.
A big thank you to the Imam for taking the time to visit us.
Tag Rugby Tournament
On Wednesday 25th May, 10 children from Year 4 went to Okehampton College to take part in a tag rugby tournament. An Exeter Chiefs coach has been working with the Year 4 class for the last 5 weeks. Jess, Amelie, Conlaed, Evan, Xavier, Tom, Jack, Anya, Billy and Sienna were chosen to represent South Tawton at the tournament. The 10 children worked hard and played very well as a team against 7 other local schools. They won 3 games out of the 4 they played, coming 3rd overall and narrowly missing the finals. It was a fantastic experience and enjoyed by all that took part!
