Current Topic

This term our history and geography will investigate the influence the Romans had on Britain today. Over the next few weeks in our topic lessons, we will be learning about, and comparing Lifestyles, Gods and Goddesses, society and food and drink. This will lead us up to our Roman Week where the children will have the opportunity to dress up as a Roman Citizen and take part in many hands-on activities. In English, we will be researching the features of newspaper reports, writing a newspaper report and creating a newspaper front page about the catastrophic events of Mount Vesuvius' eruption in AD70. We will also be writing instructions on ‘How to build a Roman Chariot’. In Maths, we be learning about perimeter and looking at the relationship between – mm, cm, m and km. We will then be multiplying and dividing whole numbers by 10, 100 and 1000.

Chariots

In D.T we used many different skills to make a Roman Chariot. We had to measure and saw pieces of wood to make a frame. We used the hot glue gun to stick the frame together. Within art, we researched and then designed a carriage to go on our frame.

Shades of orange

We used water colours to create shades of orange. We used our colour mixing skills to make the colour lighter or darker.

Shields

Within art, we researched and designed our own Roman shields. We looked carefully at the patterns and the colours the Romans used. We then drew our design on cardboard and painted them using poster paints.
