Venus Class



We have had a super start to the year and all children are working hard. It is so nice to see all pupils being so positive and enjoying their learning, you can see from this photo all the children are reaching for the stars.



In Literacy this half term, we are reading and analyzing Escape from Rome by Caroline Lawrence; so far the children have found this very exciting, why not ask them about it? We have been concentrating on writing diary entries from the character's point of view, editing and improving them.




In Autumn Term all classes work on place value, in Venus Class we have been reading, writing and ordering numbers up to 10 million. Using place value cards and some other practical maths equipment the children have all made progress in this area.




To begin our topic of Romans we had a visitor, Jeffery Andrews, who arranged for the children to be archaeologists for the morning finding different Roman artifacts. After this, they used different shapes to create a Roman style mosaic artwork.


We have been investigating forces including gravity and air resistance. To test out our theories, we made some parachutes.
