Homework:

Home learning menus are given out at the start of every half term highlighting activities and projects the children can complete based on their current topic.

 

Each half term, children will be encouraged to complete homework from a 'homework menu' from their class teacher. This will be a range of activities relating to their current topic that parents can complete with their children.

 

Please do share photographs of your children carrying out the tasks by e-mailing them to homework@woodhousewest.sheffield.sch.uk or share them with the year group's Twitter page. 

Topics covered:

Summer 1- Venimus, Vidimus, Vicimus!

 

In our new topic, Venimus, Vidimus, Vicimus!  We are going to explore the effects of ‘Romanisation’ of Britain and the impacts on technology, culture and beliefs, including early Christianity. Over the next few weeks, we will have practical and role play lessons to explore  Julius Caesar’s attempted invasion in 55-54 BC and the power of the Roman army.

Books to enjoy at home!

 

Summer 1

 

Ruthless Romans by Terry Deary

Readers can discover all the foul facts about the Ruthless Romans, including:

  • which emperor enjoyed eating camel's heels,
  • who were the terrible twins who founded Rome
  • and which evil emperors made murder a sport.

As featured on BBC Bitesize, and refreshed with a fantastic new look and a heap of extra-horrible bits, these bestselling titles are sure to be a huge hit with yet another generation of Terry Deary fans.

 

What the Romans did for us by Alison Hawes 

This child-friendly guide to the Romans and their impact on life in Britain covers everything from language to food and from roads to toilets! Complete with colour photographs showing Roman artefacts and a helpful glossary, index, and links to further information, this accessible book is perfect for children learning about the Romans for the first time.
 

 

 

Roman Invasion by Jim Eldridge

It's AD 84 when Bran, a prince of the Carvetii tribe, is captured by the Romans in My Story: Roman Invasion.

'He is not a child!' said my mother defiantly. 'Bran is a prince, raised to be a warrior like his father!'

A legion of soldiers is marching east, to build a military road. It's hostile country, and Bran is to go with them as a hostage to ensure the legion's safety … but no one is safe in newly conquered Britain.
