Year 1 and 2 visit to Hiorne Tower

As part of our Dungeons and Dragons topic Year 1 and 2 walked up to Hiorne’s Tower, in the park of Arundel Castle. The children did observational sketches of the tower and identified the features of a defensive building. Hiorne’s Tower was built by Francis Hiorne in the last 18th century to prove his abilities to the 11th Duke of Norfolk.

Roman Day

St Philips was invaded by a horde of Year 3 and 4 Romans today! Both classes came to school dressed up in togas and they all spent the day with Paul Ullson, a history specialist,  studying how the Romans lived – the day culminated in a fierce and very noisy battle!
