We were really excited to learn about how the Roman’s made mosaics and have a go at designing our own. we can’t wait to make our own next week…watch this space to see how we get on!
This week we were learning all about the features of a persuasive letter. We cut up and reordered our model text (a letter from a Roman soldier to Emperor Claudius asking to be allowed to join the Roman Army)
We investigated our whole class timeline and then looked closely at when the Romans, Anglo Saxons and Vikings invaded Britain. With our partner, we ordered the invasions on a timeline and found and out their place in world and British history.
Our topic this term is invaders!
We took our learning outside this week and played an invasion game to catch a glimpse of how being invaded feels.
This weeks topic work has all been about looking carefully at the patterns on Roman shields and having a go at designing our own. We’ve really enjoyed getting creative in our art lessons.
We have got stuck in with maths this week!
We have been busy practicing the C (Concrete) P (Pictorial) and A (Abstract) approach which is fundamental to our mastery curriculum.
We are really excited to be back at Robin Hood and are enjoying time with our friends, learning new things and settling into our routine. But…we admit we have felt a little nervous, apprehensive and anxious at times so we got creative and made worry dolls.
4Jc had a wonderful first day back! I am so very proud of all our children and how enthusiastically they arrived and joined in with all our lessons today… I can’t wait to see what we can achieve this year!
