‘Our island (and its influences)’
This term we will be looking at the Roman Empire and how its influences can still be felt in this country today – specifically in our local area. We will be covering key skills used by historians to uncover and understand the past. We will be going on a trip to Colchester Castle to explore our local Roman history experience. Later in the term we will be applying the skills we have learnt to the British Empire and continuing to explore the Roman’s in independent stage 3 projects.
This half term in Maths we will cover the following:
Read, write, order and compare numbers up to 10, 000,000 and determine the value of each digit.
Perform mental calculations, including with mixed operations and large numbers.
Divide numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit number using the formal written method of short division.
We will be using the Power Maths programme which is a mastery approach encouraging children to apply their skills to a variety of problem solving questions. To give children time to consolidate their Maths skills, they will also do Fluent in 5 (which is 5 arithmetic questions in 5 minutes) and an extended arithmetic.
In English this term, we will be looking at a non-chronological report and a balanced argument. We will be covering skills such as fronted adverbials, relative clauses and parenthesis.
In Reading, we will be working through our VIPERS skills, focussing on one each week.
Our class book:

Our science topics this year will be:
