Term 6: What did the Romans do for us?
In English, our writing will be based around our History topic about the invasion and conquest of Britain by the Romans and will be non-fiction based. We will be researching and writing non-chronological reports about different aspects of Roman life in Britain.
We will continue to work hard to join our handwriting and improve the presentation of work.
The children will continue to be given spellings to learn every Monday. They will write the words in their home/school reading books to practise at home as well as every day at school, before a test on Friday. We will also continue to explore different patterns and use dictionaries to check spellings.
Home school reading books are checked every Friday and children who have read at least five times will then be entered into a raffle to win a small prize. Please remember to sign the home/school book every time you hear your child read.
