Chocolate Roman Roads

This week we have been thinking about how the Romans helped to shape our lives today. The Romans were the first to build proper roads in Britain. We had a go at making our own Roman Roads, but a much more interesting version! If you would like to have a go at making your own Chocolate Roman Road then follow the instructions below, written by Charlie Pass:

 

How to make a CHOCOLATE Roman Road

Have you ever wondered how the Romans built their roads? If yes, then read these instructions and you might be able to make your own tasty, edible version.

 

What you need:

  • Muesli
  • Fig roll
  • White KitKat
  • Maltesers
  • Oreos

What you do:

  1. First put muesli in the cup. That stands for the rubble that the Romans used at the very bottom, once they had dug a trench.
  2. Secondly put the fig roll in. This is like the layer of concrete.
  3. Next Carefully place the KitKat on top of the fig roll. They are a mixture of stones and concrete
  4. After that, place the maltesers (which are the large stones) and try to make sure that they don’t roll away.
  5. Finally, lay the Oreo biscuit like you would smooth paving stones.

 

Don’t eat it all at once or you might be sick. Make sure that you share with your friends.

Making our own switches.

In Science club this week to link with ‘Switch off fortnight’ the children were given a challenge. The challenge was to make a circuit and then create a switch using household materials. The children used tinfoil, paper clips, split pins and card to do this. They all did a fantastic job and had fun too!

Clonter Opera

Years 3 and 4 had a fantastic day at the Clonter Opera. Our first task was to design our own sets for a stage production. Next we had a music workshop, where we sang songs, recorded a magical forest sound track, danced and even learnt the alphabet in sign language. In the afternoon, we watched the actors and singers perform. There were songs from West Side Story, Matilda and Sweeny Todd. We all enjoyed it and can’t wait to visit again.

Junior Orchestra Assembly

Key Stage 2 were treated to an exciting assembly all about Congleton Junior Orchestra. We all took part in a game of Name that tune’ where we all were able to say what song each was and the instructors were ever so impressed by our musical knowledge.

There will be an open day from 10-12pm at Trinity Church on June 16th, where there will be games and opportunities to try out the different instruments.
