'What The Romans Did For Us'.
This term we will be finding out about the mighty Roman Empire & how the Romans were able to keep control of it for so long. We will look at Roman art & engineering & the effects that the Roman invasion of Britain has had on our modern way of life. We will look at the basic needs that humans & other animals have, where they settle & how we use natural resources. We will also be visiting Lullingstone Roman Villa.
In English we will be reading 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes.
In Maths we will be revisiting place value, time, 3D shapes & we will be extending our addition & subtraction skills.
In P.E we are receiving specialist sports coaching on Mondays & exploring movement through Parkour on Wednesdays.
What is Parkour?
Parkour includes running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, jumping, rolling, crawling and other movements. It is usually carried out in urban spaces, although it can be done anywhere. Parkour involves seeing one's environment in a new way, and imagining the potential for navigating it by movement around, across, through, over and under its features.
"...as Hogarth watched, a huge, dark figure climbed up over the cliff-top. The two lights rose into the sky. They were the giant figure's eyes. A giant black figure, taller than a house, black and towering in the twilight, with green headlamp eyes. The Iron Man! Hogarth began to run. He ran and ran. Home. Home. So he got home at last and gasping for breath he told his dad. An Iron Man! An Iron Man! A giant!
His father frowned. His mother grew pale. His little sister began to cry."
See if you can work out who's who in our freeze frame scenes.
The Farmers' Meeting
The Iron Man has been causing problems by eating all the metal farm machinery in the night!
So the farmers got together to share their problems and come up with a plan.
