Term 1 Learning Update

'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 & extending our addition & subtraction skills.

 

In P.E we are doing gymnastics & tag rugby.

We reminded ourselves what nouns & verbs are by making films about them:

At the end of Dyslexia Awareness Week, Mrs Ash came in to teach the class about Picasso. Pablo Picasso was a very famous artist, but he struggled at school because he had dyslexia.

We made our own Picasso style Cubist guitar sculptures:
