New Blog Post

Silver Birch Class were very excited this week to learn that we are going to be focusing on the Romans and two Roman Mysteries in English this term. Our book corner has been transformed into a Roman Villa ready for the children to explore! 

We have begun looking at our new text 'The Pirates of Pompeii' by Caroline Lawrence. Flavia and her friends have just suffered from the terrible loss of their homes after Mount Vesuvius' eruption. Now children are going missing and it is up to Flavia and her friends to solve the mystery! Along the way they meet new characters like Emperor Titus and his daughter.

Our job is to describe these characters to help Flavia solve the mystery of the missing children. Will they solve the mystery?
