Roman Day Trip
On Tuesday the year 3s went on a very exciting trip to Wollaton Hall for a Roman themed learning day. For our first activity we had to be archaeologists. We looked at a range of artefacts and thought about what this taught us about the Romans. We found a range of animal bones, Roman coins, lamps, pottery, gold jewellery and goblets.
This week, we have started our new maths topic: time. The children have consolidated their knowledge from year 2 by telling the time to 0, clock, half past, quarter to and quarter past the hour. Towards the end of the week they also played a board game and began to tell the time to the nearest 5 minutes. Time is a really tricky concept to learn so the more practise that children get at this at home, the easier they will find this in the long term.
