Welcome Back

Welcome back everyone!

We have settled well into the Summer term and jumped straight into a new history project learning about the Romans!

Over the next few weeks we will be learning about the impact the Roman empire had on Britain. The children will learn about the successful invasion by Claudius, about Hadrian’s wall, British resistance from such people as Boudica and the technology, culture and beliefs we inherited from the Romans.

A few notes for your diary, on the 9th of May at 9.30am will be our class assembly and on the 22nd of May, we will be going to find out more about the Romans at the Museum of London. The children will have the chance to look around the gallery and then have a guided workshop called ‘Roman Costume’ More details will go out about this nearer the time.

In maths we are looking at fractions again, this week concentrating on equivalent fractions. For example, 1/2 is the same as 2/4. The children will be introduced to the fraction wall to help them see this more easily.
Have a go at this equivalent fractions game to test your knowledge, or Match the fractions here. Finally, try this one… splat!
