In history, we have been looking at what life was like for a Roman solider. We found out what was required of men, who applied for the job. We produced some fantastic Roman solider job adverts.

This week we have been working hard to write our diary entries as a Roman solider. We have been working on, including powerful vocabulary in our writing and thinking about how a Roman solider would have felt on their journey into battle.

In English, we have been working very hard since returning to school to take on the role of a Roman solider. We have been identifying features of a diary and discovering what life was like for a Roman soldier. We have been working especially hard to include adjectives and are looking forward to drafting our first piece of writing.

In maths, we have been learning about the place value of numbers and how to round numbers to the nearest 10 and 100. We have been using our reasoning skills and applying our knowledge to solve some tricky problems.

As part of our PSHE topic, we have been discussing what makes a great friend and how important friendship can be. We have also been looking at strategies to handle conflict and we had some brilliant discussions about how to resolve disagreements.
