When did they come to Britain?

What did they use to fight?

What did they eat?

Did they have schools?

What other things did they do?

We shall be visiting the Caerleon Roman Museum. (Details to follow)

We shall link our context into all other subjects to make it more enjoyable.

We will be reading a selection of short stories, novels and 'Big' books. Some of our books will be read just because they are wonderful stories. We have tried to link other books to our topic such as,  Poems Around the World, Dear Greenpeace, From a Railway Carriage and The Day the Crayons Quit.

As well as reading as a class, the children have their own reading books and will bring a book home each week. Please encourage your child to read at home whenever they can READING IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS and will help them in all the other subjects, including maths.

 

 

Maths/Mathemateg

We will cover lots of topics such as:

The 4 Rules ( adding & subtracting using money/ dividing using the bus stop method & multiplication using the grid method) 2D & 3D shape plus looking at symmetry, Perimeter, area & volume

 

The children will continue to do Big Maths, CLIC, every day and use a variety of resources to help them with their learning, such as Abacus, Kangaroo Maths and N.Rich.

After half term, we shall be doing the 'Tables Challenge' where the children work their way through the Times Tables, learning them off-by-heart. This will help them as they approach their Reasoning activities.
