Welcome to Beech Class
Beech class have really embraced our Roman Topic this term. We have done lots of artwork, designing and making our own mosaics as well as trying different ways of marbling. We are now using all of our artwork to create model Roman homes. Some children have made a Domus - where a middle class Roman family would have lived, some have made a villa, where the richest Romans would have resided.
We've spent a lot of time in the ICT suite researching the amazing life of Julius Caesar - did you know that he was kidnapped by pirates when he was young!? We are writing biographies and spending time editing these and adding pictures on the computers so that we can display them in the classroom.
In English we have taken inspiration from the Asterix books. The children have come up with some really imaginative story characters and made their own comic strip stories about an unlikely hero saving his village from the invading Romans.
We look forward to seeing what they have produced in their homework projects.
The Children all really enjoyed our French Market day. They experienced a French bakery, butchers, greengrocers, library and clothes shop. They practiced lots of French vocabulary and learned about the similarities and differences in our cultures.
We are enjoying finding out about World War 1 as part of our
Autumn 2018 term topic:
YOUR COUNTRY NEEDS YOU!
