The Rotten Romans
What did those Rotten Romans do for us? We’re going to find out how life changed for people in Britain when the Romans invaded and take a look at their settlements. We will use the knowledge we learn to build our very own Roman or Celtic settlements. We will look at what life was like for a Roman soldier and the duties they were expected to carry out. We will study the Celtic warrior Boudicca and how she was brave enough to stand up to the Romans! I can’t wait for our Roman day where children will share and celebrate all their hard work and what they have learnt over the term. (I also can’t wait for us to get dressed up!!)
During our Roman day we learnt about Roman public toilets and what they used to wipe their bottoms, it wasn’t very hygienic at all! We also learn about the different foods they ate and made some delicious Roman bread and we finally made our own clay oil lamps! What a fantastic day and we learnt so many facts!!
We have been studying the Roman Villas and Celtic Roundhouses . We researched what they were made of and the. We made our own models.
The Stone Age
We are going back thousands of years to visit the stone age! I can't wait to find out about the different civilizations that roamed the Earth and how they survived! We will find out where they lived and how they built their homes and we will construct our very own! We will learn how they made tools to build and hunt and how they made fire! We will also be looking at cave paintings and we will be creating our own! There are lots of amazing and wonderful facts to learn and I can't wait for our learning journey!
We have created our own cave art using charcoal. The children have also written some information about cave art explaining what materials they would have used to make the paint, the tools they used to apply paint to the cave walls and why it is believed they painted on the walls.
Welcome back! I hope you have all had a great summer. I am so excited to get started on our topic Extreme Earth! We are going to travel to the Earth’s core to find out what is under our feet and create our own model of what is inside of our amazing planet. We are going to study volcanoes looking at how they are formed and what causes them to erupt, I can’t wait to make our own mini erupting volcanoes! We will also be looking at tectonic plates and how they can cause devastating earthquakes and tsunamis. We are going to use what we learn to write our own survival guides! Tornados are another fascinating natural phenomenon that we are going to study, where we will create our own to see how they are formed and look at how scientists track them and collect data about them using specialist equipment.
