This term we are going to Colchester Castle as part of our Revolting Romans Topic. 3V and 4T are going on Friday the 18th of March, 3N and 4M are going on Friday the 25th of March.
What did the Romans do for us?
This term we will continue to develop our historical skills through learning about the Romans. We will be looking where the Romans fit on a history timeline and look at primary and secondary sources to start to question what life was like in the past. Once we’ve explored what life was like in Roman times we will then compare this to our life today.
Following on from our learning about the Romans invading Britain and why they did this, this week are answering the question “What was a consequence of the invasions?”. As historians we are going to use wall carvings (Primary sources) and pictures (secondary sources) to see if we can work out what happened after the romans invaded and how the Celts felt about these invasions.
In English we are looking at the Roman myth of Romulus and Remus. This week as writers we are going to explore the features of a play script before written our own script for Romulus and Remus.
Next term as mathematicians we will be learning about place value.
Mrs Smith’s group will be learning about multiplication and division then moving on to 3D Shape.
Miss Phillips’ group will be learning about capacity.

Seesaw is an online platform that allows children to complete tasks at home on the computer. It is also a brilliant resource for allowing teachers to share with you the work your child has been doing in school.
