What a busy and interesting week we have had. Unfortunately we couldn’t go on our trip on Monday but that didn’t stop us from having a brilliant week.
On Monday we completed planting up our window boxes with Pansies. Each child has planted up their own box. They are looking very lovely. In Art we continued working on pieces relating to our Romans Project. Can you believe we made Roman sandals (although we decided not to wear them when we had our big battle on Thursday!) We also did our names in very big letters and used Roman style mosaics to decorate them.
We set up our shops again in class and continued to explore money in a very practical way. We are getting very good at recognising different coins and their values. We also utilised the Stagecoach Bus to buy tickets and go on journeys.
We had a wonderful morning yesterday morning when we went to Hodgkin Park with two other classes. Our children did so well with their walking, particularly coming back as it was all uphill! We also had a brilliant Roman battle yesterday afternoon where we took our swords and shields outside and had a battle with the pesky Picts! The Romans did win we have to say but the Picts joined forces. Usman became Emperor and led his Army all around the school. He kept the most brilliant order. Sorry we have no photographs but we were just too busy role playing (anyway someone very correctly said they didn’t think the Romans had I Pods!) We came back and had a Roman Feast.
And today we had a Weekly Assembly where each child got a certificate for all their good work this half Term. We also had a big party this afternoon with our favourite games and food.
Take Care everyone.
