Year 5 undertook a challenge to create a speech and present it to the class. They were hoping their speech was good enough for the class to vote them in to school council. Here are a few photos from the speeches.

So far this term we have been studying The Romans. We have found out lots of interesting things about the Spread of the Roman Empire, the Roman Army and created our own mosaic designs.Take a look at some of our completed Mosaic tiles and designs.
