Our topic for Summer 1 is ‘All Living Things’.
In this topic, we will explore a variety of ways to identify, sort, group and classify living things. The children will learn how animals are split into ‘vertebrates’ and ‘invertebrates’ and begin to consider the differences between living things within these classifications. They will identify and name living things from the local habitat and beyond. The children will also look at the idea that environments are subject to man-made and natural changes, and that these changes can have a significant impact on living things.

Summer term will be driven through our history topic of the Romans but we will also cover geography objectives through this topic.
Our Romans topic will look at the impact the Roman empire had on life in Britain. We 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 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. They will learn about the different features of the wall and use maps to determine its location. A lesson on gods and Roman religion will help the children to understand more about the culture and beliefs of Roman people.
