SummerTerm 1 - Topic: Roman Raid
Click here to see this terms 'Topic Web'.
Our topic this half term is “Roman Raid”. As part of our study we will be looking at a timeline of events, the Roman Empire, how they built civilisations, important Roman figures and protection during battle. As part of our topic we will be looking at the lives of Roman people and learn about day to day life in Ancient Rome. In addition to these historical Roman elements, we will further look at the geography disaster of Mount Vesuvius erupting over Pompeii. During the middle of this half term we will boost our topic learning with a trip to Fishbourne Roman Palace (a letter will be sent separately with all the details). Following this we will also be creating our own mosaics within Art & Design.

The Learning Pit:
'The Learning Pit' celebrates when children stumble upon a misconception in their learning. It encourages individuals to persevere and independently climb 'out of the pit' by either recognising their mistake and fixing it OR by researching to find out the answer. Other children or adults may give individuals the tools to help them climb out of their pit. However, the quest will remain on the individual to succeed and conquer their mountain.

Our Art and Design!
To begin our printing journey, we focused and experimented with the technique of Direct Printing.
Definition of Direct Printing:
The process of printing textiles and natural objects by layering them in ink and pressing them with rollers onto a piece of paper to visualise their unique patterns.
After understanding the definition, we took our discovery outside our year 4 classroom to collect a range of leaves. We then independently used these within lesson to create our own Direct Printing art work.
Look how great they turned out!
