06 Oct Roaming Romans
This term our topic is the Roaming Romans!
We will begin with the story ‘Escape From Pompeii’ which links with our history topic about the Romans, using this as a springboard for different types of writing. In grammar, we will be learning about fronted adverbials to describe where events take place as well as revising the learning from last term about subordinate clauses and conjunctions. We will then move on to non-chronological report writing. With regard to reading, we will be focusing on developing our understanding of more complex vocabulary and making predictions about texts based on information stated and implied.
In maths we will be focusing on securing place value up to 1000 and recognising tenths and hundredths as fractions and decimals. We will also practise column addition and subtraction with numbers of up to 4 digits and learning about inverse operations. Children will compare 2D shapes including quadrilaterals and triangles and practise using both analogue and digital 12 and 24 hour clock times. Problem solving and application of our learning in different contexts will also be a focus to ensure children are developing their reasoning skills.
Our topic this term is ‘Animals Including Humans’ with a focus on teeth and the digestive system. Children will also find out about food chains.
This half term our topic is ‘God, David and the Psalms’. We will be reflecting on the nature of God and the qualities he values as well as looking at what we can learn about God from the Psalms.
Our history topic is the Romans. We will be delving into our Roman past: finding out about how and why they invaded Britain; the way they lived; and learning about Boudicca’s rebellion against the Romans.
