The Best of the Best
'Scott of the Antarctic'
'Scott of the Antarctic' was a naval officer and explorer, who died attempting to be the first to reach the South Pole.
Robert Falcon Scott was born on 6 June 1868 in Devonport. He became a naval cadet at the age of 13 and served on a number of Royal Navy ships in the 1880s and 1890s. He attracted the notice of the Royal Geographical Society, which appointed him to command the National Antarctic Expedition of 1901-1904. The expedition - which included Ernest Shackleton - reached further south than anyone before them and Scott returned to Britain a national hero.
What the children say...
Indianna- "I like learning about the Stone Age because I am interested to see how life began for people."
Jude- "I liked the Ancient High House the best because it had lots of history. My favourite room was the attic because of all the facts about the war."
Lily- "I liked the Gatehouse because I have been there before and it was bigger than I remembered."
Year 4 have been busy learning about the Romans and how they built the first roads in Britain. They had a go at creating their own version of a Roman road using a variety of materials.
They then went to see the new development that is currently taking place in Stafford. The children learnt about what materials they were using to build the road, and what plans needed to be drawn up before the development can begin.
