The Claypole Church of England Primary School

Believe And Achieve: To Be The Best That We Can Be



Welcome to the Puffins class page!

Spring Term 2024 


This term our theme is The Romans and we will be asking and answering the question, "How Roman are we?"


We will be learning about the incredible Roman Empire and its Emperors. We will also find out when and why they decided to invade Britain and why they left. We will explore their inventions, their deities and their way of life and finally consider their legacy and affect on our lives.  


Some of the key questions are:


  • What is the Roman Empire?
  • Why did it collapse?
  • What did the Romans do for us?



On Mondays the children will be doing Netball and on Fridays they will do Tag rugby.

Please make sure your child's PE kit is in school all week.



Reading : Children should read daily at home. Please log the pages read and add a comment. The children are now expected to change their own books, making their own choices about which book they want to read by looking at the front cover and reading the blurb.



If you are unsure about anything, please do get in touch either by class dojo or email.

Using Querns- As we are currently learning how Paleolithic Hunter Gatherers changed into Neolithic Farmers we explored one of the tools that they used- the quern. The children chose their own rubbing stone and experimented with different techniques to grind cornflakes as the farmers would have ground wheat into flour
