Autumn Term 2018:
This term our topic is Romans. We have learned about the expansion of the Roman Empire and what it would have been like to be in the Roman Army.
Our English work has looked at the animated clip 'Dum Spiro'. We used the clip to write setting and character descriptions which we then used to write our own versions of the story.
More recently we have used the fictional book 'Escape from Pompeii' to look at more setting descriptions and we wrote a diary entry for the day Mount Vesuvius erupted.
Most recently we have had a visitor who came into school. The children thoroughly enjoyed a Roman experience: handling artifacts; showing off their knowledge in a quiz and learning a maths game called Delta. In the afternoon they practiced battle techniques and drills, and took part in some one on one combat.
In Science we have been learning about different types of rocks and soils.
In Maths we spent the first few weeks consolidating our knowledge of place value. We have completed a unit on Addition and Subtraction.
We are having a big push on times tables at the moment and do weekly times table challenges.
In PE we have had half a term of fencing instruction. The children have learned new skills and terminology and finished with a competition at the end of the half term.
