Our topic for the the Autumn term is ‘Romans.’ We will be looking in depth at the achievements of this ancient civilisation. The children will learn about how and where the Romans lived, what was important in the daily lives of Romans, who Boudicca was and how their power spread. The children will also learn about Roman Gods.
In English, for the first half term we will be writing myths based on the ancient Roman myth - Romulus and Remus.
Mathematics will cover Place Value. We will explore partitioning and adding 10,100 and 1000.
In Design Technology we will be making Roman chariots, designing and evaluating our designs using our design criteria.
Our RE work will start with Creation.
In science, for the first half term we will be focusing on forces and magnets. We will be looking at forces including friction and magnetic attraction. The children will be learning about forces in the context of pushing and pulling, and will identify different actions as pushes or pulls. The children will work scientifically to investigate friction, by exploring the movement of a toy car over different surfaces.
