We have created fire poetry, after reading about the fire in our class book the Fatal Fire. We thought about the vocabulary that we used to create images in our poems.

As part of reading our class book 'The Fatal Fire', we sat around the firepit to read the next part of the story. We put paper cubes at edge of the fire, imaging they were the houses in the story to see how the fire spread. It was fascinating to see how quickly the houses caught light. We wrote lots of phrases from our experience, such as 'lingering smoke', 'flames danced like ballerinas' and 'crackling like popcorn'. These will help us to write our poems later in the week.

As part of our Topic work, we have been learning about how efficient the Roman army was. We had a go ourselves, marhcing and trying to create their impressive Testudo formation, which helped the Romans to defend themselves from the attack of their enemies.

Archaeology - To start our new topic we learnt about how we find out about life in the past. We discovered what an archaeologist does and had a go ourselves.
