What a fantastic start to our new topic all about the Romans. We spent our first day of the new term preparing for our Roman battle. The children made some fantastic swords and shields to be used. The children thought about some tactics to use against 4NW and decided that it was a successful battle allowing us to conquer the field!
What better way to recreate a Roman Road than with cake! 4CJ have looked at how the Roman roads were formed and the different layers used to make them strong. The children used biscuits, cake and cream to show the different layers. Once set, the children could see how the Romans made the roads strong enough to carry trade and supplies for the army.
The children are really becoming experts at decimals this half term. Some examples include comparing numbers (using less than and more than crocodiles) and used giant and pixie feet to see that a tenth is one whole split into ten equal parts. Take a look at what the children did in the photos below.
