Welcome to Stoat class
In English we are linking our writing to our topic on the Romans. We have researched what the Romans ate and created our own Kahoot quiz. We followed a Roman recipe to make some traditional flatbread. (See more pictures in the link below)
We had great fun during the Roman day. The children looked amazing and completed many activities throughout the day, including a Roman numeral game, Roman quiz and participated in the Roman army. (See the tab below for more photos from the day)
Here is the recipe if you wanted to have another go at home:
Bread was a staple food in Ancient Rome consumed by all social classes. The lower classes ate bread with little bit of salt while wealthy Romans also ate it with eggs, cheese, honey, milk and fruit. Here is a simple to follow set of instructions about how to make some flatbread.
- get 500 grams of spelt flour
- 350 ml of water
- a little salt
- 1 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil
- Large bowl
- Mixing spoon
- Measuring jug
- Weighing scales
- Baking tray
- Before starting, preheat an oven to 180o C (350 F).
- After heating the oven, add the spelt flour along with a little salt in a large bowl and thoroughly mix.
- Once the ingredients have been mixed, pour the olive oil in the bowl.
- Then, gradually add the water and continue mixing until you get a dough that isn't too sticky or floury.
- When the mixture is the right consistency, knead the dough and make it into a circular shape. Make marks on the top of the dough with a knife dividing it into 8.
- Finally, bake for 45 minutes in the oven. If you can cover it with a lid to ensure it doesn’t burn.
- From the oven, bring the Roman bread out to cool and it is ready to be served.
Tip: Please note that since no yeast is being used, the bread won't have risen much if at all.
In maths we have taught formal methods for addition and subtraction. We have built on place value, working with numbers in the thousands. We are now learning about multiplication, starting with multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100. Our KIRFS (Key Instant Recall Facts) are facts linked to the 6 x tables.
We learnt about electricity, conductors, insulators and electrical appliances in science and used our knowledge of this to make some lighthouses in DT. (See the tabs below for more pictures)

-PE is on a Wednesday, but it would be ideal to have PE kits in school each day.
-Children can change their books on a Friday during our library slot.
