Autumn Term 2019

Our topic this term is 'Who were the Romans?'. So far we have been exploring what the Romans did for us and how their occupation of Britain changed the country forever. We are all looking forward to our visit to Fishbourne Roman Palace to further develop our understanding of the Romans by exploring their beautiful Roman gardens and a huge collection of Mosaics. 
In English we are reading ' Escape from Pompeii' by Christina Balit. We have used a mixture of drama and discussion to familiarise ourselves with the story, which has helped develop our increasingly varied vocabulary.  We have also written our own story based on the text, which we have drafted, edited and presented to our friends. 
In maths we have been learning all about Place Value, including rounding to the nearest 100 and Roman Numerals.  We are all working hard practising our times tables too!
Also, we are really looking forward to playing our clarinets in our concert later his term. We have been perfecting our skills in our Music lessons with Mr Mott.
