We are enjoying our topic about the Romans. Earlier in the week, we covered the reasons why the Romans wanted to invade Britain, and we used atlases to identify which countries were invaded. Today we looked in more detail at what life was like in Roman times. Please encourage your child to find out more information about what it would have been like to live in Roman times. The BBC website has some good video clips to support the learning about the Romans. If the children type KS2 within the search, the pages should be appropriate to their age group.
Please continue to practise the words from the spelling list. This week we have looked at words with the prefix dis-. Please click the main title to open this post. The spelling list has been added at the bottom of the page.
The children have enjoyed the speed challenge of recalling addition number facts and times table facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times tables to beat their score from the previous day. I have seen good improvements with all the children over the past two weeks. Next week the focus will be on multiplication and division facts for various tables. Please encourage your child to practise division facts in particular for the tables they are learning.
