AUTUMN TERM 2:
How did the Roman army achieve so much? The Principle of adaptation
Chertsey Museum Visit
Chertsey Museum visited us to share a mixture of genuine and replica Roman artefacts. The children got to handle the replicas and observe the genuine ones. Writing on beeswax tablets was a new experience and not the sort of 'tablets' the children are used to! They all thoroughly enjoyed being immersed into Roman life.
Roman Shields and Formations
Year 3 became Roman soldiers using their geometry learning to create these stunning symmetrical shields. We then took the shields out into the battle/playground to re-enact traditional Roman soldier formations.
The Roman army was the backbone of the empire’s power, and the Romans managed to conquer so many tribes, clans, confederations, and empires because of their military superiority.
Information for parents
Click on the above links to see a PowerPoint for progression of maths skills at Ashley school. These will be useful so that you are able to understand the methods your child uses, which may be different to the methods you use, so that you can best support them. Please ask your child which method they use as it will differ for each child. The key is that they are comfortable and secure in the method they use.
