In history this half term we will be looking at the Roman invasion of Britain. Around 2,000 years ago, Britain was ruled by tribes of people called the Celts. But this was about to change. For around a century, the Roman army had been building an Empire across Europe. Now it was coming for Britain! In AD 43, the full might of the Roman army landed on the beaches in Kent. Over the next year it battled inland, storming through hillforts and chopping down anyone who stood in their way. The Romans wanted Britain's precious metals. However, we will explore the fact that they weren't just a destructive force - they built new forts, new settlements and roads. They spread their culture, language and laws.
Our new science topic is sound. We will explore how sounds are made when objects vibrate. What happens in your ear as vibrations enter. We will find out more about how sound travels, pitch, volume and man-made sounds.
We enjoyed using Microsoft Teams to take part in an online history lesson, where we completed our own Roman timelines.
The Ancient Egyptians.
This week we spent time learning about the Ancient Egyptians which was the history topic we didn’t get to cover in Year 3. We learnt about the River Nile and the hierarchy of Ancient Egyptian society.
We have enjoyed being back at school and sharing our experiences of life over the past few months with our friends and teachers.
We thought carefully about the things which bring us joy and make us smile!
What makes you smile?
