Roman Records and Myths

This term, we have been carrying out a lot of cross-curricular work as the Romans have come to our classroom, both in the forms of records and myths.  We began by reading the book Escape from Pompeii written by Christina Balit and exploring other Roman events, which were recorded.  We then created our very own Roman Records, which concluded with the writing of a newspaper article about the eruption that took place, marking a moment in history.  Later in the term, we moved on reading Roman myths, exploring the different features and at the same time learning about the different gods and goddesses.  We then moved on to planning and writing our own!

The Pebble in My Pocket: A History of Our Earth

Later in the term, we read A Pebble in My Pocket written by Meredith Hooper.  This fascinating history of the earth took us on a scientific adventure through time and across the globe - all by following the trail of a single people over millions of years.  Not only did this provide us for a lot of food for thought, which resulted in some excellent pieces of writing, but we also made sure we focused both on our spoken language and drama skills too.  

UG: Boy Genius of the Stone Age

This term, we will the reading UG: Stone Age Boy Genius by Raymond Briggs.  This beautifully illustrated graphical novel not only ties in beautifully with our learning about the Stone Age in history but should also inspire us to write a range of different texts.  Everything varying from Stone Age cookery show scripts to information to fact files about famous inventors and inventions.  So watch this space!
