Welcome to the final term in Cedar class! Where has the year gone!? There is still plenty going on in the next few weeks to keep us busy though!
We are continuing to look at the Romans for our topic and this will run throughout different areas of learning.
Our English text will again link with this topic as we are using an illustrated story called 'Escape from Pompeii' as the stimulus for our writing. We will begin the term with our response writing, including predictions, setting descriptions and persuasive writing. Later in the term we will then write a story using this text as our inspiration as well as writing explanation texts, which will involve learning more about causal conjunctions and how to use them in our writing.
In maths, we are going to begin the term by looking at adding amounts of money and subracting to find change. We will then be focusing on different areas of measure such as mass, volume and length.
Our Roman learning will take a geography focus this term. The children will be looking at how far the Roman Empire spread as well as identifying towns and cities across the country which were originally Roman settlements.
In art, the children will be looking at mosaics and designing their own before creating this with squares of paper for the mosaic effect!
PE will be on a Thursday afternoon and this will be an indoor session. We will then go to Forest school every Wednesday afternoon, weather permitting. Please remember suitable kit for both sessions. For the woods, children need a sensible and comfortable pair of shoes. We only have a limited amount of spare wellingtons in school for emergencies. Also, if you are able to join us in the woods as support then please let me know!

Have a good final term!
