PE will take place on Tuesday and Friday.  Please make sure your child has the correct PE kit.



Children are required to read everyday at home, preferably with an adult and have their reading book changed at least once a week.



A visit to the school library will be on Monday.  Children will be able to choose books to take home to read and change them on the following Monday morning.



Spelling will be given on Monday.  This will involve children researching words with similar spelling patterns.  A test will be conducted on Friday. Ten basic words with the spelling pattern will be chosen.

The Romans

Attached above are two different activities to develop your understanding of the Romans. This is because after the Christmas break we are learning about the Romans, in particular; the Disaster of Pompeii, Roman achievements and Julius Caesar's invasion on Britain. If you would like to have a go at one or both of these activities you will be able to share what you have learnt to the class.

Merry Christmas!
