This page is dedicated to all the exciting things we will be doing in class this year.
This is what is happening in term 3
Dear Pupils, Parents and Guardians,
This term, Hawks will explore Ancient Rome and research the Roman invasion of Britain, as well as the spread of the Roman Empire world-wide.
Our two class texts are ‘Romans on the Rampage’ by Jeremy Strong and ‘What the Romans did for us’ by Alison Hawes. Whilst the first is comedic fiction, which will be used to hook the children into their roles as Roman chariot designers and then racers, the second is non-fiction, with discussion about Roman inventions that still shape our lives today.
The children really enjoyed our Wow Day and started making their Roman clocks, complete with Roman Numerals and mosaic patterns. We will be taking this one step further as we practise following instructions to attach a working clock mechanism. These will be displayed in the classroom and the children will bring these home at the end of the term.
Hawks are keen, once again, to take part in some food tasting and have asked to learn about Roman food. I will send a message and food details nearer the time and, as usual, you can advise me if you prefer that your child not take part.
Mathematical learning will be finding factor pairs in the first instance, followed by multiplying and dividing 2 and 3-digit numbers. We will then move on to studying perimeter and length.
Mr Hayes will be teaching invasion games and I will be teaching gymnastics this term. Children do need to remember their PE kits and these can remain in school.
I will be in class from Monday to Thursday and Mr Hayes will be teaching the class each Friday. Please feel free to contact me with any queries or pop into the classroom to have a look at our Roman-themed learning space and say hello!
