Year 4 - Miss Corcoran and Mrs Pollard

The Romans impact in Britain

 

This half term we will be developing our knowledge on Romans. On Wednesday 29th January, we will be having a Roman dress up day, which is also the same date for our class assembly where the children will be showing off what they have learnt about the Romans so far!

We will be researching why the Romans came to Britain and understanding what life was like before they settled here. Year 4 will have a lot of fun designing and making their own Roman shields before practicing battle formations.
In D.T, we will be designing a Roman fortress with moving parts.

 

Forest School

We are very pleased to be starting Forest School this half term, which will take place every Monday! Please make sure your child brings wellies for the forest.

Homework

Our homework is set weekly on Thursday. There will be three pieces per week (Spellings, Maths and English or Topic) Homework is to be returned to school on the following Wednesday.

A homework club will run on Thursday for children who have not completed their homework, or those who need a little help.

Aside from this, we are encouraging the children to read at least four times a week, even if just for 5/10 minutes as it can really help children progress in their reading.
