The Colosseum, Rome, ItalySalve Amici!

A warm welcome to Rome’s class page!  We are proud to be named after one of the world’s greatest civilizations, and a city that’s known today for its style and culture.


Our topic this term is ‘The World on our Doorstep’, and spreading throughout all our learning. We're looking forward to learning about the history and geography of Woodchurch.

What heroic acts have you achieved?

How To Train Your Dragon

We are enjoying reading Cressida Cowell's, "How to Train Your Dragon".

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was an awesome sword-fighter, a dragon-whisperer and the greatest Viking Hero who ever lived. But it wasn't always like that.

In fact, in the beginning, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was the most put upon Viking you'd ever seen. Not loud enough to make himself heard at dinner with his father, Stoick the Vast; not hard enough to beat his chief rival, Snotlout, at Bashyball, the number one school sport and CERTAINLY not stupid enough to go into a cave full of dragons to find a pet... It's time for Hiccup to learn how to be a Hero.


Christian Values

This term, our Christian Value focus is "Thankfulness".  We are learning how Jesus teaches us to be a good friend to others.

"Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever."
1 Chronicles 16:34

Our Worship theme is, 'The Symbol of the Cross'.  Each week, a class write and shares a prayer during worship.  Please revisit our page soon to read our contribution.

Here’s to another exciting term!
