Active Earth! We have started our final topic of the year by creating our own paper plate landscapes involving mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes. We are very excited about this topic!
We are musicians! We have started our ukulele lessons this term and we are loving it! We have learnt a whole range of new musical vocabulary, done a lot of percussion activities and recently started learning chords to put into songs!
We kicked off our new topic - Clash of Kingdoms - with a little historical inquiry. We looked at images of artefacts and buildings from Anglo-Saxon times and posed questions about them. We hope to have discovered the answers to our questions by the end of the Topic!
In Maths, we've been learning how to use protractors to measure angles. We took our learning outside this week to draw chalk angles on the playground to practise our protractor skills!
We created a Roman Bakery! To finish off our learning about the Romans, we used our DT lessons to learn how to create Roman bread. Once we'd baked some, we edited and improved the recipes ourselves, adding new ingredients. We had mixed results!
We have linked our artwork to our Topic this half term by using our sketching skills to sketch the Colosseum in Rome. We learnt about tone and shading (and how it's absolutely fine to make a mistake because the Colosseum itself isn't perfect!).
We are poets! During English this half term, we have been looking at the poem 'I am a Roman Soldier' by Josiah Wedgewood. We had a go at writing our own!
Our next topic is 'All Roads Lead to Rome' - while working from home we created our own representations of a Roman road. Have a look at what we've come up with!
Our DT topic for this half term is 'Bridges'. We spent time working collaboratively to design, build and evaluate our own bridges. Have a look at them below!
We took a little detour during our Topic to learn about the American Civil War - we have found it absolutely fascinating. Have a look at what we discovered!
We kicked off our Stars, Stripes and Sea Otters topic by creating double page spreads about North America, focusing on human and physical features!
