Roman Around!

In our project lessons this week, the children will learn about the Roman invasion in detail to support the newspaper report they are writing in English. They will be expected to be able to recount what happened during the Roman invasion and then use their understanding to support their newspaper report.

PE – Please ensure your child has appropriate footwear for PE as well as tracksuit bottoms and a jumper in their kit, so that they are able to take part in their lesson successfully. We will still do PE in cold and drizzly conditions and it is important that your child is prepared for this.
