Autumn Term 2020
Our topic this term is the Romans. Throughout the term, we will look at life in Ancient Rome, the origins of Rome, the Romans' invasion of Britain, and the lasting impact of Roman Britain. Our learning will be complemented by a trip to Vindolanda and The Roman Army Museum which will give children an insight to the Romans' impact in our local area.
Our topic in science this term is Space: The Earth, Sun and Moon. During this science topic, we will look at the role of the Sun, Earth, and Moon and their relationship with each other. We will also explore some of the other planets we share the Solar System with, and the vast contrasts between each one.
This term our art will explore the human form in action. We will look at how the idea of movement is shown in different kinds of art, such as photography, illustrations, cartoons, paintings, prints, and experiment with different methods and techniques to show movement.
We have PE on a Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure that PE kits are weather appropriate and are worn on PE days.
Home learning is set on a half termly basis and will take the form- this year- of 6 creative tasks on Seesaw.
