Over the past couple of weeks, Eagles have been exploring how catapults work and have designed and made their own. Today we tested most of them in the classroom and so far Conrad's catapult has propelled the load (a sweet!) the furthest with a whopping distance of 3m 36cm and Oscar's reached a distance of 2m 11 cm. We were all very impressed!
Well done Eagles for speaking clearly, singing beautifully and sharing all your Roman knowledge in the Parent's Assembly on Friday. You were all fantastic!
Thank you parents for coming to support us and for all your effort that you put in with costumes and learning the song.
Meeting an Author 08.11.18
Eagles thoroughly enjoyed our talk with the best selling author Caroline Lawrence at the Subscription Rooms today. We learnt a lot about her books, characters, how to write a great story and Roman toilets!
I know the children are keen to get reading and may persuade you to spend their £1.00 book token on one of Caroline Lawrence's books. The first book in her new series 'The Roman Quests' is set in Roman Britain and is called 'Escape from Rome'. She also has a series of Roman Mysteries and the first one is 'The Thieves of Ostia' which also caught the children's interest.
Thanks to all the parent helpers who made the trip possible. We are looking forward to our trip to the Corinium Museum next Thursday.
