English this half term is based on our Roman topic. First we will look in depth at non-fiction texts and conduct research in order to create our own non-fiction booklet about the Romans. We will also write diaries and letters from a Roman soldier’s point of view and use drama to take us back in time! Our book this half term is ‘Romans on the Rampage!’ by Jeremy Strong. It is a superb book filled with humour and information.
