This half term, year 6 have enjoyed studying the Romans. We learnt about Roman pottery, studied designs and then practised sketching some ideas in our topic books. We chose our favourite designs to paint for our display. Within this topic, we have also researched and produced pieces of writing about why the Roman army was so successful and also considered why Caesar failed in his attempt to conquer Britain whilst Claudius gained victory.
We have also thoroughly enjoyed our literacy work based on an in depth study of the book, Eye of the Wolf. Much of our comprehension work and writing have linked to the themes and characters found within this text. The complicated plot has many different strands and it is really clever how the author brings it all back together at the end! We really recommend you read it!
