This week, we have been working towards writing reports on Roman day. The children used sensational language, the passive voice and answered the 5 W questions, producing some really engaging articles. Have a read of an extract from Jess's report below...
Earlier today, year 4 pupils from the remarkable Crabtree Junior School, had the unique opportunity to take part in an outstanding Roman event, held in their vast school hall to kick-start their fascinating topic on Ancient Rome.
The extraordinary day was led by Charlie Clark, a national expert on the history of Rome. Charlie was petrifying as he barked out his orders. Year 4 pupil Amelie remarked, " Charlie terrified us all, playing the role of a fierce Roman Centurion!"
Soon after, the children set to work, constructing a catapult, creating a battle medal and much more. Miss Clements exclaimed, " It gave the pupils a better understanding of life in Ancient Rome and encourage the pupils to work as a team."
After half term, the children will be designing and making their own Roman shields. Please could you bring in a flat piece of cardboard, 1m x 50cm approximately, to be used for this. Please note, it is easier to paint blank cardboard rather than a printed box.
We hope you have a lovely weekend
Miss Clements and Mrs Renier
