Autumn 2
After a much-needed half term break the children have returned to us full of enthusiasm. We kicked of this half term learning about Boudicca and her impact on the Roman invasion of Britain. In English, We have been continuing with our work on 'Romans on the Rampage' by Jeremy Strong and learning the skills we need to write our own newspaper report. 
In Maths the children have been working hard on addition and subtraction and I am really pleased with their progress with this. We have been exploring St Jude - who is the Acorn class Saint and have created some lovely stained glass effect pictures to display in the classroom. 
We are looking forward to starting Music lessons after a break during Covid restrictions. 
Autumn 1
The children of Acorns class have had a wonderful start to the new school year. Year 3s have settled in beautifully and are brilliant class members, and year 4 are being incredible role models. I am so proud of them all. 
We have started this term with the topic 'Who are the Roman's?". We are exploring how the Roman's had an impact on Great Britain and where, when and how they began. We have already created some amazing Roman army shields and have practiced some formations. 
In English, we have been reading 'Escape from Pompeii'. The children are fascinated by this story and this is reflected in their writing so far. In Maths, I am so pleased with how hard they are working in every lesson. We are focusing on place value and the children are doing amazingly. 
We looking forward to starting some RE and Science over the next couple of weeks.
