Big Talk


Hi Everyone!

Thank you for the great things you have sent in for homework last week, the children have really enjoyed reading ‘The Little Red Hen’.  Today we made bread just like the little Red Hen did and this afternoon Seren’s mum brought in some real hens for us to look at.

We have started the children with reading books, it is essential that they have a reading folder to carry the books to and from school.  These are available at the junior office for £4.00. Please bring your child’s book and book bag into school every day and write in the record book and let us know how your child has gone on.  Each week we will have ‘Reader of the Week’, the children who have read the most at home will be allowed to have a ‘dip in the box’.

We will also be setting the dough area out for a birthday party to link with our reading scheme.  If you have any birthday candles, table cloths, old birthday cards or party invitations we could make good use of them!

We would also be grateful if anyone has any dressing-up clothes they could spare and any items left over from Halloween, they would come in useful as we will be reading the Funnybones stories.

As we come to the end of our first half term we would like to say how proud we are of all the children and we are pleased at how well they have all settled into school.

Finally we would like to wish you all a happy half term holiday.

Thank you for your continued support,

The Reception Team

I think the Roman houses were very well built, because they were the first to use some cement in their houses. I wonder if they would have known that we would be digging up some of their houses still today!

I would like to live in a Roman house because they had a swimming pool in the middle of their houses. The swimming pool was called an impluvium. The Romans liked to see the garden from their dining room. It would make me feel nice and relaxed, ready for bed! I would also like to have a mosaic on my floor, like them.

I wouldn`t like to live in a Roman house because they were all open and I would feel all cold, especially when winter came!


Would you like to have lived in a Roman house?

The romans

The Romans were here long then we’ve ever been.The Romans fought other country’s to make a bigger empire to take over more country’s or to take other the entire world but that never happened.

Then the Romans atempted to take over britian , they tyres twice but failed both. The next emporer was called emporer claudius he got so mad he had 45000 Romans solders to take over Britain.



The Romans arrive in Manchester

In AD 69 the Romans arrived in the north  of England.  The Roman Governor, Agricola built a fort from turf and timber around AD 79.  It was named Mamucium.  Known today as Manchester.

The name Mamucium is Latin for ” breast shaped hill” after the shape of the rocky hill it was built on.  You can find a statue of the Roman Governor Agricola in the centre of Manchester outside the Town Hall.

The mermaid and dragon

” Grandma when do you think it’s going to stop?” cried Patcy. Patcy could hear lots of different sounds outside.  She heard a loud crash , Booms and a bash.

Her grandma replied ” I don’t know my dear I hope no one’s hurt.”

” Me to.” replied Patcy. ” Why is they such thing as a war”. Asked Patcy. Patcy lived in Scotland so she had an accent.

” Because there’s nasty people.” Sighed grandmar. Before dad left he gave her a charm which had a dragon and mermaid on it. Every minute more and more bombs went off. So nana decided to put patcy as an evacuee.

The lion and the unicorn

I am enjoying learning about The Lion and the Unicorn.

So far I have learnt that Lenny has been evacuated and these girls are bullying him.

My favourite part in the book is when he tries to run away and a unicorn comes out of the woods and then he falls asleep curled in the unicorns wings.

I can’t wait to finish the story.

Who founded Rome?

According to the Roman legend, Romulus was the founder of Rome. Romulus and his twin brother Remus were the sons of the God Mars. When they were very young they were abandoned by the banks of the River Tiber and left to fend for themselves. Luckily for them they were found by a she-wolf who took pity on them fed them with her milk.  The boys were later found by a shepherd who raised them. The boys grew up to be very strong and clever and they decided to build a town on the spot where the Shepherd had found them. They named their town Rome.
