Holy Rood Catholic Primary School


This term, we have loved learning all about the Romans and the Roman Army. We made our own Roman shields in DT and then we learnt how to follow commands like the Roman Army used to do! We learnt: silente! movete! testudinem facite! The children have taken their shields home now and we are sure that they would love to demonstrate their Roman marching at home! :)

We have been looking at the Book 'Escape From Pompeii' in English this term. After reading and becoming confident with the story, we really enjoyed acting out our own versions of the events. We made up our own characters and used our imaginations to think of ways for them to escape from the 'Gentle Mountain'. Miss Masi was very proud of our acting and she actually felt like she was in Pompeii with us!

This term, Jaguars class are taking part in gymnastics lessons as part of PE. We enjoyed our first lesson of this term, working collaboratively with our peers to create static shapes with our bodies!

This week, we have been investigating multiplication using loads of different strategies and objects around the class! We have used pasta, unifix, pom-poms, sweets, repeated addition, bar models and number lines! We are getting really confident with our 3, 4 and 8 times tables!
