You Wouldn’t Want to Be a Roman Gladiator!
Our big enquiry question will be 'Why do humans need nutrients, skeletons and muscles?' We will build on our learning from Year 1 and Year 2 and will begin to look at the nutrients in food as well as the skeletal and muscular structures of animals and humans. There will be some fun experiments along the way! Our science will link into our PSHE which focuses upon why we should keep active and sleep well?
Our big enquiry question will be ‘How did the Roman invasions change life for Britons?' and in this unit we will focus closely on how the Roman changed the culture of Britain. We will consider why the Romans invaded and whether the native Britons welcomed them. Before we look at the changes to Britain under the Romans and the legacy of the Romans. The Kestrels will also complete a case study on the Roman’s influence and legacy in Ketton.
We will continue our Maths journey throughout the term beginning with Fractions and then moving on to angles and properties of mass.
The Kestrels will be looking at the ‘genre’ to inform. We will be writing explanation texts and radio broadcasts. Our whole class read will be The Emperor’s new clothes by Hans Christian Anderson.
On a Monday and Thursday, we will be doing athletics as the weather is getting warmer. The Kestrels will be learning how to copy, repeat and evaluate simple athletic skills and actions showing control and co-ordination.
The kestrels will be designing and evaluating products with 2D and 3D shape. The children will investigate a range of textile products that have a selection of stitches, joins, fabrics, finishing techniques, fastenings and purposes, linked to the product they will design, make and evaluate
