As scientists we will be:
- continuing our learning on forces, testing the strength of magnets and learning which poles will attract and repel.
- carrying out a range of engaging experiments during science week, such as looking at the relationship between the size of our bones; naming our bones; creating chemical reactions and shooting rockets into the air!
- collecting data and presenting it through tables and graphs.
- making predictions and analysing our results.
As designers we will be:
- looking at the purpose and design of different bags, especially those that were used in Roman times.
- learning different sewing techniques and stitch patterns (running stitch, back stitch and cross stitch).
- designing and sewing together a Roman coin purse
As musicians we will be:
- finding out which instruments were played during Roman times.
- analysing the composition of Roman battle music, thinking carefully about the pitch and tempo.
- learning how to play different notes on the keyboard.
- composing a piece of music in groups for the Roman legion to march to.
As mathematicians, we will be:
- measuring in centimetres and millimetres.
- learn that 100 centimetres is equivalent to 1 metre and 10 millimetres is equivalent to 1 centimetre.
- compare, order, add and subtract lengths which may need converting.
- calculate the perimeter of 2D shapes, by using repeated addition or making connections to multiplication.
