Teaching in Lime class this year is Mr Briggs and Mrs Kelsey is the class TA.
If you need to speak to Mr Briggs, please feel free to use the email function on the class page, or arrange to meet before or after school at a mutually convenient time.
Homework is sent home every Wednesday and is due back on Tuesday of each week at the very latest, so it can all get marked. If you can get your homework back in early 3 weeks in a row, I'll give you a week off homework. PE is every Tuesday and Thursday and we'll be trying to be outside as much as possible. So, please make sure you have your PE kit in school on those days.
This term our value is Appreciation and our topic is Rotton Romans.
Maths - our topics this term include: comparing whole numbers to one hundred thousand; rounding to ten and one hundred; estimation, factors and multiples; multiplying by one and two digits and dividing by one digit. We will apply the concepts and skills of the four operations to solve word problems. We will be looking at various geometric shapes and their properties, as well as finding out about statistics and data collection. Throughout the term, we will continue to practice arithmetic and problem solving skills and to improve our recall of our multiplication tables.
In Science, we have been looking at all living things. We have been put and about around the school grounds looking at different organisms and their environments. We've also been making our own classification keys to sort living organisms into different categories.
As Historians, we will use different sources of evidence to answer key questions about the Romans. We will make comparisons between historical periods explaining things that have changed and things, which have stayed the same. We will be learning about aspects of daily life in Roman times, focusing specifically on the lives of the rich and that of the poor, exploring the invasion of Britain by the Romans, looking at the story of Boudicca, Roman Gods and exploring the story of Pompeii. As well as all of this we'll be having a Roman Workshop and building our own Roman Villas.
