Friday 17th September - Roman Day!
To kick start our Roman History topic, we had a day entirely dedicated to Romans. We began the day by making our own Roman mosaics, talking about the idea of the rich and wealthy having these to decorate their homes. We then moved on to making our own Roman shields and talked about the meanings of the symbols and what a 'boss' was used for. Then we finished off the day with a fantastic feast - some of us were slaves, serving the Romans with the best dishes...
Barn Owls have been exploring rocks in Science! We talked about what a geologist is, before moving on to classifying them by their characteristics. We found that there were lots of different ways to classify rocks: weight, size, colour, pattern, texture to name a few! Barn Owls then carried out Moh's scratch test to find out which rocks were hard and which were soft. We discussed how chalk is soft and diamond is hard.
This term's R.E topic is reconciliation, so we have been thinking about different ways to show the mending of relationships and friendships. We acted out some friends falling out, and then the peacemaker helped the friends to reconcile.
