Week beginning 24th September
We completed our Roman shields last week, and prior to them coming home to you, we had a practice invasion during KS1 play. We were quite successful in herding many of those children into the stage area. After that victory, we had a go at the testudo, before marching back to class. Images are in the gallery.
Just before we leave The Bay of Naples behind, the book Escape from Pompeii gave the children a great background on which to base their descriptive writing and everyone should be extremely pleased with their results. If your child wishes to read you their writing from last week, catch me at the end of the day and we can get that arranged.
Our focus for the next three weeks in English will be myths, where we will be using The Orchard Book of Roman Myths by Geraldine McCaughrean. The week ahead will see us using our comprehension skills together with looking at the typical structure of a quest.
In maths, we enter our third and final week of place value for this term, looking at ordering numbers, negative numbers and a little more practice on rounding.
Elsewhere, in history we will look at The Celts while in Science, it’s investigation time, as we look at keeping our teeth healthy.
We are really pleased with the way that the children have settled into their learning this term, there will always be a few niggles, but remember we are here to try and iron them out before they become a problem.
Finally, congratulations to Jack who received our behaviour award last week.
