Exciting things the children will be learning in the Summer term…

Our history focus this half term will be the Roman Empire and it’s its impact on Britain.  This will follow on chronologically from our work on Iron Age Britain.  We will be learning about how the Roman Empire began and why the Romans wanted to invade Iron Age Britain and the impact this had on the country in terms of structures and settlements.  We will also be thinking about some of the changes the Romans made and how they still affect our lives today.  In Geography we will learning about Volcanoes and Earthquakes.  We will be thinking about how volcanoes are formed and what causes earthquakes, with a focus on Italy. In science, we will be learning about different sources of light, how it is reflected and how shadows are formed.   In RE, we will be learning about the Trinity in Christianity and about Jesus’ Mission Statement. In PSHE, we will be covering the topics: Managing Risk, Healthy Lifestyles, Safety Contexts and RSE. In ICT we will learning about how to send and receive emails safely and how to use graphs to represent data. Katsushika Hokusai will be our focus in Art and we will be creating block prints inspired by his work.  In DT we will be learning about what makes a healthy and balanced diet and we will be creating our own pizza to reflect this.
