Welcome to Larch Class
Our class teacher is Miss Clarke and our teaching assistant is Mrs Hewitt.
Mrs Velasco, Miss Sturgess and Mrs Lodge will also work with us in groups.
This half term our topic is The Romans. For our immersion, we started off by sharing what we already know about the Romans. Then we worked out where Rome was, looked at the names of different Emperors, discussed famous landmarks built by the Romans and thought about what food the Romans would have eaten. Finally we looked at and discussed the patterns in Roman mosaics and had some time to create our own mosaics using coloured card.
In science we are looking at plants. We will be linking this with our computing for this half term. We will do this by using data loggers for an experiment to measure certain changes in the plants environment and the effect it has on the plant.
We have been looking at the properties of 2D and 3D shapes in maths and enjoyed exploring the properties of 3D shapes using play dough. We will also be looking at written methods for multiplication and division this half term.
