Seacole Class update

We have delved even further into our topic this week, including being investigative historians, investigating why the Romans wanted invade Britain! We found that Britain had lots of valuable goods, including food and materials that would be very useful to them and make them rich! We also sequenced the events of Ancient Rome onto our own timeline. We also have continued learning place value and partitioning numbers into hundreds, tens and ones. We finished the week by completing our sentence stacker lessons on ‘Pompeii’ and finished the ending ourselves (spoiler alert: there was a huge earthquake!).

It has been an exciting beginning to learning the curriculum in our lessons this week and we have certainly all been curious learners. We have dived straight into learning about ‘The Romans’ for our topic, including locating Rome and Italy (and the countries and continents around it!), we have began exploring the expansion of the Roman Empire, and in English we have began writing super sentences about the story ‘Pompeii’. We also have read and answers questions about ‘The Ruthless Romans’ in guided reading. We have began looking at place value in maths and started our new cursive handwriting, in handwriting.

Well it has been a very fun start to the new school year! We have had a different learning week this week, focusing on ‘learning to learn’. This has consisted of ‘The Learning Pit’ ‘The Power of Yet’ ‘The Brain’ and our JONK characteristics. We have learnt that these are all things we can use to help us to learn and that it is okay to make mistakes! We also did some team work activities, including building tall towers out of newspaper. Miss Gray has been very impressed with us all, and looks forward to beginning the curriculum with us next week. Have a lovely weekend!
