Year 4 - visiting King Alfred

Year 4 children walked in to Winchester to see the famous King Alfred statue. The children followed their instructions, and didn’t lose Mrs Ruddick smith on the way! They kept each other safe by identifying risks along the route, and supporting one another, sharing their findings.

The children enjoyed sketching different parts of the statue, and showed off their artistic skills beautifully. They also counted how many fingers King Alfred had, to check he hadn’t lost any in battle! They represented the school in a positive way, listening out for traffic and walking along the pavement allowing for members of the public in their path. To celebrate, when we arrived safely back at school, we had hot chocolate and marshmallows which warmed everyone up nicely.

Thank you so much to the parents and carers who walked with us, it is very much appreciated when people spare us some of their valuable time to help us.
