English and Maths information:

In English we have been practising various skills including letter formation and how to join these. We have also completed an unaided write where the children wrote an adventure story based on a given map. We were so impressed by the imaginative and creative journeys they took their characters on in a quest to find a magic ring.

In maths we have recapped our understanding of 2D shapes, identifying the properties of these and finding right angles.

Other curriculum news:

We had an amazing day at the Dorset County Museum on Tuesday. We were astounded by the size and quality of the Roman mosaics and all of the children could not believe their luck when they were told they were allowed to touch the mosaics! Whilst at the museum we took part in other activities such as an archaeological dig, finding Roman artefacts and a tour of the museum where we saw Roman soldier skeletons and discovered how they died!

Our visit to the Roman townhouse in the afternoon was also eye opening. We became historians for the afternoon, trying to discover what different rooms were used for and how the Romans lived. The whole year group was particularly impressed by the two rooms in the townhouse which had under floor heating! Thank you for all of your support in helping us get the children to the museum, we had a very exciting day packed full of learning!
