English- Fronted adverbials

We covered fronted adverbials earlier in the year when we wrote our stories. Watch the video and do the activity on BBC bite size.

Look at the sheet with fronted adverbials listed on them. Write down which ones you might be able to use in your diary entry of a Roman soldier. Think about expressing the time, place and manner in which something might happen in your Roman diary entry.

Make sure you complete 2 studio sessions and 2 sound checks before going on the garage. Feel free to challenge me!

Maths- Telling the time

We have been looking at time. We have looked at past and to, telling the time to the 5 minutes and the nearest minute. We have been doing this using analogue clocks. Now we are going to look at how to change analogue time to digital time.

Just watch the video and do the activity about digital and analogue times, do not do Roman numerals.

Work through the PowerPoint. Write in your book the digital time for the time on the clock face. Once you have done that reveal the answer and mark your work.

12:15- 1:15


1:15- 2:00

Experience – The Roman Army

Today you will be beginning to look at the Roman army. It was thanks to the success of the Roman army that the Romans managed to expand their Empire to make it one of the largest in world history! The Roman army are still remembered as being one of the best, most effective armies ever. Some ideas that Roman army leaders used are still used today.

Watch the BBC videos: ‘The armour and weapons used by the Roman army’  and ‘What life as a Roman soldier would have been like’

Draw a roman soldier labelling the armour and weapons he would have had. what is he wearing? Look at his armour, shield and weapons. What is each part for? Why was it so effective? Can you make a list of all the things a roman soldier had to do or timetable of a typical roman soldier day?

2:00- 2:30

Exercise – e.g. mindfulness yoga, fresh air in the garden, run up and down the stairs seeing if you can get faster every time!
