The Romans (History focus)
As historians we will be learning about the impact the Roman Empire had on life in Britain. Children will learn about the spread of the Roman Empire, the invasion of Britain and the eventual conquest. The children will also look in detail at some aspects of the Romanisation of Britain, such as the building of Roman roads and bathhouses. In addition to this, they will have the opportunity to learn about the British resistance of Boudicca and will act in role to look at the events of Boudicca's rebellion from different perspectives. The children will also investigate Hadrian's Wall, examining how, where and why it was built.
This half term, our topic will be ‘Natural Disasters.’ Children will find out all about the Earth's extremes, from raging tropical storms to violent erupting volcanoes to terrifying towering tsunamis. We will look at the physical geography of the Earth and what causes earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanoes. They will also explore how these events affect people, communities and landscapes.
