We have been enjoying our new topic on the Romans. We have created timelines and put key historical dates in chronological order to understand when the Romans ruled across Europe.

We really enjoyed dressing up as Romans for the day though some of us found football on the playground a little difficult.

For term 1 we have been working on our place value, ordering numbers and lots of work on the properties of shape. We have made a great start and we are sure we will meet our target times tables with a bit of practice.
