This term we will be continuing our Roman learning journey.
In Science we will be looking at animals & what they need to survive in different environments.
In English we will be studying persuasive language & how it is used. As the weather changes we will also be thinking about “the season to be jolly & joyous” (to quote the Muppets - falala!).
In Maths we will be exploring fractions & how they relate to multiplication & division. We will also look at addition & subtraction, & deepening our knowledge of place value to help. We will be using number lines to compare numbers & find the difference. We will also be looking at using units of length & capacity.
In P.E. we will be improving our basketball skills with Mr Adams on Mondays & developing our dance & gymnastic skills with Mr Sollis on Tuesdays.
We have been developing our use of persuasive language in our English lessons this term. If you have noticed your child becoming much more persuasive when asking for things, this could be the reason why!
The children have written a persuasive letter to a Roman Emperor, advising them whether they should invade Britain or not. They also came up with names & slogans for a Roman toothpaste (made from powdered mouse brains & human urine).
As a final test of their persuasive skills, the children worked together to see if they could persuade Mr Kilbride to give them a morning off. They made films explaining why they thought it was important to help wildlife in aid of Steve Irwin day.
