Our topic this Summer Term is Dymock Through the Ages, we will be learning all about our village of Dymock, looking at how it has changed over the years. We will focus on particular places such as the school, railway and pub! Also, we we be learning about the Dymock poets, trying to recreate their poetic style.
Today we had a visit from the Key To Life Bus. We learnt all about the story of Jesus as well as answering some very important questions: Who was Jesus? Why was he important? We also had great fun exploring the bus and using its interactive features!
Our year 6s did us proud at Gloucester Cathedral this week for their Leaver's Service. They danced, read prayers and taught songs to other primary schools across the county!
This week we were very fortunate to have a visit from Jacob Goulding's Great Aunt Van. She taught us all about farming in the Dymock area during the 1940s and how it has changed over the years. We got to look at some fantastic primary sources such as sale records and maps as well as some artefacts from the time.
Have a look at Class 4's Photo Gallery to see our photos from Activity Week!
Class 4 had a great time exploring our village and learning all about its history from Mrs Pearson (Dymock used to have 7 pubs!). We were able to see pictures of serveral buildings from the area and see how they have changed over the years, we even got to watch one of the local roofs being thatched and see where the railway used to be.
