Welcome to Owl Class
Our topic this term is Step back in Time – The Romans. During this topic we will be learning all about Roman Life, in Italy and in Britain after the invasion. We will look at how archaeologists and historians piece together information in order to learn about past lives. To make this come to life, we will be visiting Vindolanda and the Roman Army Museum after half term. In our DT this term we will be baking actual roman recipes and trying what they ate for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Don’t worry, we will stay clear of the stuffed dormice, camels’ feet and the ostrich brains! For more detail about all the exciting activities linked to curriculum subjects please look at our topic web.
Our topic this term is Picture This. We will kicking off this topic with an inspirational visit to the Bowes Museum focussing on Quentin Blake’s amazing artwork in the BFG exhibition and the beautiful works of Art in the Portrait galleries. We will be investigating lots of famous paintings, finding out more about the artists who made them and thinking about the stories behind them. This will develop critical thinking skills and creativity. In our DT this term every child will have the opportunity to participate in food technology activities such as pizza portraits and chocolate bar inventions. We will be reading the BFG and writing for different purposes using the book as a starting point.
