Summer Term - What did the Romans leave behind?


In English we will be exploring writing factual reports, using “The Diary of a Worm” to help us. We even have some pet worms, caught at school by the children. Our current class novel, which we read daily, is “The Sheep-Pig” by Dick King-Smith.

In science, we will be learning all about plants, including the functions of each part, how water is transported within plants and the life cycle of flowering plants.


In maths we will continue to learn how to tell the time and later we will look at statistics and fractions. As we are learning time we would encourage the children to wear a wristwatch to school (analogue or digital).

Please encourage the children to access the TT Rockstars websure as much as possible.  It is imperative that they get a good understanding of mental multiplication to help them in their maths journey at Dallam Primary.



OOur project question this term is: “What did the Romans leave behind?” We will be starting our project with an exciting trip to see the lasting Roman legacy in Chester. We will them be exploring the Romans lasting legacy of tactics, art, food, music and religion. This will include lots of opportunities for practical work and creating things. This will extend to getting involved at home, including creating their own Roman shields using recycling materials that can be found at home.


Each Monday your child will be bringing home some new spellings that they need to practice in school as well as at home. On Friday we have our weekly spelling test. You can help your child at home by practising. A useful website:   www.spellingtraining.com

Online Safety

The staff at Dallam are huge advocates of what an amazing tool the big wide web is. We are showing the children in Maple class how to use features such as email and blogging in a safe and controlled environment. However, we know that there is much more at their fingertips. Please have a read through the links below that the Maple team have put together for you. If you need any advice or to discuss matters further please see us any day at hometime.





Here are some useful and reccomended websites that you can look at with your child at home.

Maths - TT Rockstars
