This half term, using Augustus and his Smile as a stimulus, we will be developing our English skills by writing about Augustus' journey to find his smile. In Geography, we will learn more about the location of tigers around the world and using clues from the text explore his journey around the world. In Art, we will be using print to replicate illustrations and Henri Rousseau’s work, in particular "Surprised! Tiger in a Tropical Storm."
The Digestive System
To launch our new topic, we entered the hall and became archaeologists! We started investigating clues for our topic. To begin with we used different tools to dig up artefacts such as: a trowel, sieve and a brush to find the objects in the soil. As we dug, we discovered: numbered envelopes, pictures, mosaic tiles, coins, a wooden plaque, broken pottery and a bracelet. Whilst we were investigating, we had to think about questions we would ask about the artefacts. Using our detective skills we tried to identify what ancient civilisation our topic was about. After closer inspection and a class discussion we discovered out topic is The Romans!
