Term 1

This term, we have started to explore and understand the lives of Romans and Celts. We read ‘Captive Celt’ by Terry Deary and used this to explore the lives that slaves led during this time and improve our research skills; using our knowledge, we wrote diary entries as if we were a slave in the Roman times. We then moved on to becoming building experts, creating instructions on how to build Roman roads.

We have been exploring place value and working on our understanding of numbers.  Identifying what numbers represent and practising adding and subtracting one, tens and hundreds from three digit numbers by using concrete representations and learning more sophisticated techniques.

We are also practising out times tables on timestables.co.uk where every pupil can track their progress and earn rewards!
