 This half term the children will be learning about the Roman Invasion of Britain and will be reading a book with a Roman theme, called 'The Queen of Darkness' as their class reading book.  This book will be used to inspire their writing in English.  In English they will be writing a narrative set in Roman Britain.  Also in English, they will be learning about alliteration, the rule of three and using speech.  In Maths, the children will learn about Roman Numerals, place value, adding and subtracting with numbers with more than 4 digits and rounding of numbers.  In Art, the children will study the work of LS Lowry and produce their own version of his work using oil pastels.  In RE, the children will complete a Christianity unit, which looks as God as holy and loving.  In Science, the children will be learning about the properties of materials and conducting experiments about these.  In PE, the children will complete a dance unit and in Computing, the children will code using a program called Scratch.
