SPRING 1

We are looking forward to starting our brand-new theme with you this half term which is...THE ROMANS!

  Our theme question for this half term is...

Why did the Romans invade Chester and who were the significant individuals at this time?

 

Our English text this half term will be "Escape from Pompeii " written by Christina Balit which is a brilliant text where you can travel back in time to the days of the Roman Empire...

Join Tranio, the son of an actor, and his friend Livia, the baker's daughter, in witnessing the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD79. 

Tranio, like most Roman boys, likes to watch whatever is going on: tradesmen selling their goods, ships unloading their exotic cargoes, politicians making speeches in the forum. But one hot August day a very different scene unfolds. The ground begins to shake, the sky to darken. People run gasping for air. Heading for the harbor, Tranio and his friend Livia hide on a boat and witness one of the most terrifying moments in recorded history-the eruption of Mount Vesuvius and the destruction of their beloved city, Pompeii.
