Everyone was raring to go from the moment they walked in the room Monday! Not sign of any post Christmas blues, nothing! The children simply sat down, pulled out their equipment and started to work. Amazing right?
In all seriousness the children have been fantastic. In English we have started our Non-Chronological Reports unit, we have already recapped the basic features and have started to analyse reports and identify what makes them effective. We will be combining this with our "Pharaohs to Emperors" topic for some cross-curricular learning (the children are very enthusiastic).
Speaking of Romans and cross-curricular activities, the children have even taken to Roman numerals, whether it be reading numbers below 30, playing numeral bingo or making different numerals out of match sticks... We have it covered!
Thursday was our "Roman Day", the children all looked fantastic! We had a room full of Roman soldiers, senators and even higher class citizens! They took quickly to their new roles as Romans during Latin, if only it was still used, some of the kids were simply magnificent. Take a look!
Well it has been a VERY eventful first week back, I'm sure next week won't disappoint... But for now...
See you then!
