Year Four

Welcome to Year 4!

Autumn Term 2018

Welcome back to school!

Well done to all of the children for their contributions to our World War One Assembly, and thank you to those parents who came to watch and support!

We have enjoyed learning about World War 1, and this term will be learning about some more interesting topics.

In History we will be learning about the Romans and what their impact was on Britain. We will be exploring Roman Myths and Legends in English, namely the legend of Romulus and Remus. In Maths we will be learning our Roman Numerals, along with linking perimeter and area to Roman buildings and homes. In Science we are learning all about electricity and will have a go at making our own electric circuits.

Of course we cannot forget that this half term is the build up to Christmas. In the classroom we will be completing a number of Christmas reacted activities. Our Christmas party will be in the afternoon on Monday 17th December.

Please remember to read every day at home, and that our spelling and times table tests are every Wednesday.
