We have continued to enjoy our Roman topic this week. We spent a whole afternoon using the internet and books about the Romans to do some research. We learnt a huge number of new things! We were surprised to hear that Roman girls did not go to school and that the Romans sometimes kept monkeys as pets! Here are some pictures of our research:
If you want to find out more about the Romans at home, then there is lots of information on the following links:
In Science, we have been learning about the importance of our skeletons. We had lots of fun assembling our own paper skeletons, and then found out about the names for some of the important bones in our body. As well as this, we learnt about why we need a skeleton (to support us, to help us to move, and to protect us). You can learn some more at home here - http://www.childrensuniversity.manchester.ac.uk/interactives/science/bodyandmedicine/theskeleton/
During English lessons, we have been thinking about non-chronological reports, or information pages. We were all employed as news reporters for Oakfield First News, and we had to choose three of our favourite things to write about, using headings and subheadings to organise our pages. We are going to carry on with this next week as we begin to prepare to write some reports about the Romans.
