an amazing Easter break... I look forward to sharing your chocolate eggs with
Summer Term is my favourite term for so many reasons: swimming, residential,
sports day, sunshine... the list goes on!
This term, our topic is split into 2 parts therefore, we have 2 BIG QUESTIONS:
From pizza to Pompeii: what makes Italy great?
What did the Romans do for us?
Initially, we will be learning all about Italy - the culture, the food, the historic monuments. We will also be learning about volcanoes & earthquakes: what causes them? What are the effects of such natural disasters? What are the different rock types?
During the second half term, we are going to be turning our attention to The Romans: who were they? How have they impacted our lives? How was life different for rich & poor Romans? Who was Boudicca?
