Red - Year 5

Autumn Term in Red Class


Welcome back to the new academic year!

This term our topic is Roman Britain. We will be looking at what Britain was like before the Romans invaded, why they wanted to come and how they changed Britain.

Our Key Question is: Why did Boudicca rebel against the Romans and was she right to do so?

We will be having a number of Roman experiences throughout the term including meeting a Roman soldier, visiting a Roman villa and working with archeologists to find out about how evidence has been uncovered.


To see more of the work we will be completing this term please have a look at our topic web.

We give out a spelling sheet once a half term with all of our spellings for the half term on it. The children only need to learn the spellings for the week they are being tested. We will test spellings on a Friday.

Below you will find a copy of the spelling letters and some ideas for how to practice spellings at home.
