Welcome to Autumn 1 & 2


We have been learning to use Roman numerals.  These pictures helped us to write our own Roman calculations.



Look at our Roman pottery.  We have learned archaeologists have found Roman pottery in the ground and these have provided clues as to how the Romans lived.



Wow! What amazing number bond posters these are!  Great homework Pine class.



Pine class created some amazing shields, swords, helmets and even a chariot for their homework.  Fantastic work.
