Our first week back had one main focus...The Romans! We wanted to get our new topic 'Pharaohs to Emperors' off to a great start so we decided to do lots of different Romans based activities.
In Maths we have been working on Roman numerals all week. We made Roman numerals out of matchsticks and also used them to play snap and bingo. We even started looking at Roman Numerals larger than 1,000! This week's homework is also all about Roman numerals. You can find copies of the homework below.
In Geography we worked on locating Italy on a world map and then focused on the different regions of Italy and colour coding them on a map. We also had to locate the surrounding seas and the countries that bordered Italy. Now we know where the Romans came from!
As well as all this, we have been creating Roman coins, thinking about mosaics, writing our own questions we want to find out about the life of the Ancient Romans, learning Latin, discovering what life was like in the Roman Army and making our own Laurel wreaths. We looked AMAZING when we dressed as Romans for our Romans day too!
As well as all the Roman fun, we have been learning about subordinate clauses in English and we fenced in PE. Talk about a busy first week back!
