We are brave, powerful warriors, and we will meet in battle!
This half term, we’ll divide into two warring groups: the Celts and the Romans. In our battle games, who will be victorious? We’ll research Celtic and Roman warriors and write monologues as Roman Generals. Using different source materials we’ll investigate the Roman Empire and read Roman numerals making links to 'Time'. The Celtic warrior queen, Boudicca, will inspire us to create stories, models and artwork. We’ll write plays about gladiators and a menu for wealthy Romans. Using maps, globes and information books, we’ll compare Britain (the home of the Celts) and Rome (the home of the Romans). We will also design and create our own class mosaic in D&T.

The Romans changed the course of England’s history. Why not visit a museum together or look at Roman artefacts online to see what you can learn about the Romans? You could also look at holiday brochures and online information to find out about modern day Rome. Which tourist attractions would you like to visit? Alternatively, you could work together to make a model of a Roman villa using recycled materials.



In Science this term we will be learning all about electricity.
We will be identifying common appliances that run on electricity. Construct a simple series electrical circuit, identifying and naming its basic parts, including cells, wires, bulbs, switches and buzzers. Identify whether or not a lamp will light in a simple series circuit, based on whether or not the lamp is part of a complete loop with a battery. Recognise that a switch opens and closes a circuit and associate this with whether or not a lamp lights in a simple series circuit. As well as recognise some common conductors and insulators, and associate metals with being good conductors.

Commando Jo

Our inspirational figure in Commando Jo this term is the Roman slave and gladiator Spartacus. Famous for leading a revolt against the Romans. Do we have what it takes to train like this famour warrior.
