Our topic this half term is "REVOLUTION" it is all about the the industrial revolution during the Victorian era.
In Science we are going to be investigating forces on objects and looking at friction.
Our class text this half term begins with "I was a rat!" By Phillip Pullman and the children are already really enjoyng this story. It has curious links to a well known fairy tale and is very mysterious.
In Maths we are spending severals weeks on adding and subtraction, focusing on several different strategies for mental and written methods and including some reasoning and problem solving.
In PE we will be learning skills and tactics to be able to play Hockey.
In Design and Technology, we will be investigating how levers and pulleys work and making some of our own.
In RE we are thinking about Festivals, focusing on Christmas, Eid, Diwali and Passover.
We have been looking at Roman art work and architecture. We discovered that the Romans loved Mosaics! They used them to decorate public buildings and temples, Roman baths and they even used them to decorate the walls and floors of their homes.
We have produced some of our own mosiacs on a sea theme. We think that they are rather good.
We have spent some time this term exploring the story of Six Dinner Sid. It is a fantastic story all about a greedy cat who had six owners so that he could have six dinners a day! We thought that we could write a similar story about our very own school cat Cilla. So we adapted this story, inspired by our love for Cilla the Outwoods Cat, we wrote our own versions of Six Dinner Cilla!
To see more of Cilla's adventures, have a look at Cilla's very own twitter page!
4.10.20 - Topic Launch
We launched our new class topic this week all about The Romans. We began to find out all about Mosaics which the Romans loved to decorate their walls, floors and sometimes ceilings with. Then we used pieces of coloured plastic to create our own mosaics.
We looked at Roman maps and compared them to modern day maps to find out about Roman city names. Then we made our own roman maps.
We also explored the features of a Roman settlement and created our own.
We found out about the Roman army and looked at symbols on a Roman Shield. We made a class shield and some of our own too.
We began reading the story "Escape from Pompeii." This story follows the lives of Tranio and Liv as they flee from the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD. We spent time exploring what it means when a volcano erupts and why it is so devestating, before then writing our own versions of events. We will continue looking at this story over the half term.
