Weekly update


This week in English, children are writing the final chapter of our English book Revolt Against the Romans and in Maths we are working on multiplication and division skills. We will be starting to make a Roman brooch out of felt using sewing skills that we have practised in DT and in science we will be thinking about safety when using electrical items and completing our final circuit experiments.
