Humanities
 
Our new topic this term is about the The Romans and Hadrian's Wall. As an introduction we would like you to have a go at the research project we have attached below. We would like you to focus on why the Roman army invaded Britain and why the Roman army was so successful.
 
Science
 
In science our focus is on sound. We have put together some experiments we would like you try at home. Record your results in your home learning book or on in some other way if you prefer. 

English

Spelling, punctuation and grammar

The children should complete one of the grammar tasks below each week. Please read the instructions for each question carefully as we have given some clues to go with some of the questions.

 

Reading

We would like you to keep working on the list 'Reading Journal' activities we sent before Easter. Please try to complete one of these tasks each day. The children can use a school graded reader, or a book from home. These tasks should be competed in your child's exercise book.

 

Continue to read a range of fiction and non-fiction books with your child. Suggested questions to help deepen your child's understanding of their books can be found on pages 100-101 of their 'Home School Reading Record'.

 

Get Epic

We have set the children a number of books to read related to our topics on Get Epic. This digital library is free to use during school hours and the children should read 1-2 books each week. Most books come with a quiz that should be completed after the books have been read carefully.

 

Get Epic can be accessed via this link or through the Get Epic app.
