Welcome to Beech Class!!
What a busy start to the new school year, the class have settled in brilliantly and have been enjoying their first weeks KS2.
Our first topic of the year was Romans (History) and we were lucky enough to have been visited by a Roman Gladiator for a day. The children were incredibly well behaved and thoroughly enjoyed dressing up and immersing themselves in all things Roman!! The children learnt all about roman history, investigated real roman artefacts and re-enacted roman battles and stories.
This half term we've moved on to Italy (Geography) which links nicely from the Romans and the children have enjoyed making links with what they've learnt already. To start, we took a whistle stop tour around Italy.....since then we have located continents of the world, tried sketching Roman vases, learnt all about Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius and volcanoes, have written an adventure story and will soon be making our own Italian inspired pasta dish!
