Half term information Autumn 1 2023

This half term, we have immersed ourselves in different aspects of Roman life. We have learnt about the Roman invasion of Britain, life in the Roman Army, and Roman interactions with the native Celts. The children wrote fantastic Roman myths, informal letters and information texts, and made authentic Roman shields and swords for our very own Roman Wow day… which culminated in a battle using traditional Roman techniques of marching and the turtle!

In Maths we have covered place value, rounding and addition and subtraction. We have also continued learning our times tables, with the children healthy competition using Times Table Rockstars.

Our Science learning has been based around the different states of matter: solids, liquids and gases. We have carried out lots of investigations, including one in which we explored the effect temperature has on rate of evaporation in different locations around the classroom.

The children have loved learning ball skills (hockey and football) during outside PE and have been developing their balance skills during gymnastics lessons inside, which resulted in the performance of routines they put together with a partner.
