The Romans are the inspiration for our writing this term. We will be taking on the role of archaeological story-tellers in order to learn and share the history behind ancient artefacts and ruins. Our class novel, “The Thieves of Ostia” by Caroline Lawrence, will take us back in time to join 3 friends who join together to solve a mystery. In maths we will be delving deeper into multiplication and division by strengthening our mental calculation strategies, consolidating our written methods and applying our knowledge through problem solving and reasoning activities. Our value this term is respect and we will be thinking carefully about responsibility and how we can take responsibility for our own learning.
