30th October - 3rd November 2017
 
Welcome back to the second half of the autumn term!
 
The children have come back to school refreshed and ready for the next half term.
 
This week we have begun looking at newspaper reports and what features newspaper reports have. We have looked at different headlines and what makes a good headline.
 
In Maths we have been starting subtracting using the column method and borrowing numbers. This has been a difficult concept but everyone has worked really hard. 
 
In RE we have started our new topic of Sacraments; we have begun thinking about belonging and the different groups we belong to and how these are important to us.

Last week we had our trip to New Barn. It was a fantastic experience for all involved. We began with a talk from a Roman Soldier who gave us an overview of what it was like to live in the Roman times. We then did activities; where we made mosaics and did Roman writing, we ground up flour using different stones and we made poultice a form on antiseptic like the savlon that we use today. 
 
We then learnt to march like a Roman soldier and went into the Celtic roundhouse which was a little smoky!
 
We all had a fantastic day and learnt so much more about what Roman life was like.
