OUR STUNNING START!

On the first day back, we found out our Roman names, learnt about Boudicca and learnt games that Roman children played.  Some of these games have been adapted and are still played today.  Although our play is far more inclusive and less cruel than Roman children would have been.

On Monday, Eamonn Reilly (a children's author) will be visiting our school.  Eamonn says,  "now this is what I love, school reading days. I do love writing the books, but for me the greatest buzz is to stand up in front of a group full of children and take them on a journey of excitement".
