We have now reached the end of our Roman Topic so this will be our final Roman piece of work. This week we wanted to give you a choice of activities to do. Please complete as many as you wish.
Activity 1 – Roman Mosaics
Please read the information about mosaics and find out five more of your own facts. Then, design and draw your own mosaic pattern or picture. You could even cut out some collage materials for your own tesserae to use to help you create your design.
Roman Mosaics Home Learning Task
Activity 2 – Roman Villa
Make a model Roman Villa with under-floor heating.
The richest Romans lived in fine houses which we know as ‘villas’. Just like today, the owners liked to make their houses look special, building them to fit their needs and to show off their wealth. Use the simple floor plan and illustration as the basis for your villa. But remember that you can vary the design depending on what sized boxes you have and to make the villa your own, just like the Romans did.
Activity 3 – Roman Leaflet / Poster
Using the information below and any prior knowledge, please create an information leaflet or poster all about the Romans.
As a class, we are going to create a time capsule for you to open at the end of Year 6. Over the next few week Task 2 will be about creating pieces that will go in the time capsule.
Interview your Household
This piece is called ‘Interview your Household’. I would like you to interview a parent / carer about life in lockdown.
You may wish to use the example below as a structure to help you or create your own.
Task 3 (Optional – Set by Mrs Ford)
‘Who managed to make butter last week? Well done to all those scientists who did! If not head on back to last week’s Science Blog and see how!
This week we will be investigating something very different! We will be looking at Rocks!
As before, the video offers you three options; planning, recording and evaluating. Our focus is the third but if you want to practise your planning and recording skills to that would be amazing!
I would love to see the before and after shots of your rocks!’
This one is just a reminder about MyMaths, Topmarks and other websites you can use for your home learning. It is also important to get some exercise, you could have a look online at cosmic kids and have a go at some yoga, follow Joe Wicks at 9am each morning. Finally, a reminder to keep reading. I’d love to hear what you’ve been reading at home too.
Keep being hard-working and show kindness and resilience.
Missing you all,
