Information

 

TopicIn this half term, Year 4 will be learning about the impact of the Ancient Romans on Britain. Initially, we will be focussing on the differing personalities of Caesar and Claudius both of whom brought vast armies to invade Britain. Then, we will investigate why the Ancient Romans left their sunny home for a cold island like Britain.

 

Later on, we will examine the changes the Ancient Romans brought to Britain both at the time of Claudius’ invasion and afterwards. The children have already begun to use clues from the past to reconstruct aspects of Roman life such as exploring artefacts like a Roman Legionary’s body armour and helmet. Much of our learning will be very active, be it  ‘Hot seating’ Emperor Claudius, acting as one of his advisers and trying to persuade why it would be worthwhile invading Britain or creating living graphs to illustrate the Romans’ changing fortunes.

 

 

Home Learning:

All Students will receive weekly home learning sheets, which we encourage this to be completed to support their learning.

Reading

Please read with your child as often as possible at home and record in their home school book which is checked daily. Half-Termly rewards will be provided for the students who continuously read and record it.

Spelling

Children will receive a weekly list of spellings to learn at home. These will be sent home every Thursday, and then checked in school the following week.

 

PE:

Year 4’s P.E times are as follows:

Monday (indoors) and Wednesday (outdoors)                                           

We will be continuing with the daily run or movement activities, so please ensure that your child has suitable footwear to participate every day. PE kits will be sent home on a Friday to be washed for return on Monday.

 

 

Please do speak to us if you have any queries or concerns.

We strive hard to meet the needs of those pupils with special education needs, those with disabilities, those who are more able, those with special gifts and talents and the children who are learning English as an additional language.
