Autumn 2: The Romans:
Our topic this half term is The Romans. We will be going back in time and exploring life in Roman Britain. We will be using our historical skills to examine different artefacts and learn all about the different sources we use to learn about the past. We will be learning all about the Roman Army and how they were so successful. We will be using our geographical skills to locate and find Rome on a map and track the expansion of the Roman Empire.
In English we are using the quality text Falling Angels by Colin Thompson. We will be writing our own adventure stories based on the book. We will be developing our descriptive skills and using commas and inverted commas.
In science we are learning all about humans and animals. We will be looking at the skeleton and comparing a human skeleton to different animals. We will be discussing nutrition and what makes a healthy diet.
In art we will be creating our own Roman mosaics. We will also be sketching Roman artefacts and creating portraits of Roman Gods.
