This term our focus is 'The Italian Experience'. We have been learning all about Italian life, the people who liver there, the things that they like and also about the history of different parts of Italy such as Pompeii and Rome.
One of our favourite stories this term has been 'Escape from Pompeii' which was all about two children and their brave escape from Pompeii at the time when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD.
This term we have been reading 'The Jolly Postman'. We have enjoyed learning all about letters and the different types that people send and receive in the post. We have been writing different types of text such as letters, postcards, birthday invitations, lists and we've also made posters.
As part of the story we have also been role playing being the postman. We have been making letters and delivering them to our friends and making our own parcels to deliver on the postal route around school!
