In Topic Maths we have been investigating lines of symmetry and used peg boards to create an image that had 1, 2 or 4 lines of symmetry. Can you find the lines of symmetry in the mirror line?
In PSHE we have been looking at what strengths we have and how we can build resilience. We had to sort helpful and unhelpful thoughts, so we can only use the helpful thoughts in our daily life.
As part of English, we identified in our reading about Boudicca what words we did not understand. We looked them up, decided their word class and draw what it meant.
We have been investigating 4 digit numbers, creating them, partitioning them and working out 10, 100 and 1000 greater and fewer. We worked out that we had to exchange our counters to find the answers to some, eg 100 fewer than 8723.
We showed empathy to explain how that person felt when the Romans invaded Britain. We hot-seated first to be that character and how they would speak. We then wrote in character showing empathy for their situation.
Using a map we mapped the expansion of the Roman Empire from 237BC to 113AD, using different colours to show their growth and which countries today they took over. This includes 42 countries that exist today.
We imagined we were Tranio back in Pompeii just before the volcanic eruption and described the wonderful place we lived in using our adventurous vocabulary. We really love the words looming, bustling and haggling.
We worked as collaborative cats to create a paper bridge using only one piece that would hold a glue stick. We tried many ingenious ways, including a bit of cheating to accomplish this. In the end we realised that we had to fold the paper and make some sides so that the glue stick could not move.
We created posters to show what makes a happy person and what makes us unique individuals. We had to think about what our special qualities are that make me ME. We are all different but very special.
Our topic is the Rotten Romans and we found out about the Roman Empire, where it was and what countries the Romans had invaded and conquered. Afterwards we researched the Romans and found out about how they invented toilets and when they went to a banquet they had to eat and eat until they felt sick. They then went to vomitorium to be sick, so they could eat more!!
We have been counting in regular steps of 10, 100, 25, 6, 7, and 9. We looked for patterns in them and found that when we counted in 9’s the pattern was diagonal. We counted in 7’s and 9’s from 0 and then from 1 and realised that we would never colour in the same numbers.
