Welcome to Olive Class

During the Autumn term, our project question is, 'How did people from the past shape the world we know today?'. During this project the children will learn about chronology, Julius Caesar, the Roman Empire, Roman numerals plus much more. We will start the project by taking a trip to the DEWA museum in Chester. The trip will be on Thursday 19th September. 

The children are excited to start this project and want to find out the following:

  • Who and what is Julius Caesar famous for ?
  • What does Chester have to do with the Romans?
  • Why do the Romans not exist anymore? 
  • How was Roman life? 
  • Do we use any equipment in school that the Romans used?

 This half term we will be focusing  on narrative writing. We will use the book, 'There's a Boy in the Girl's Bathroom',  to enhance learning, along with teaching the skills that are needed for the children to independently write their own narratives.

The children will continue to learn a range of grammar skills. This half term they will focus on relative clauses, expanded noun phrases plus co-ordinating and subordinating conjunctions.

The children will have a big push on spellings this term. Use this website to help your child at home.

We will be working on place value and calculations. We learn how to read and write to one million and the value of each place. In addition, the children will revisit all 4 operations ( addition, subraction, multiplication and division). 

They will then be applying these skills to more complex problems.
