Class Studies
Our first half term topic is based on the History topic ‘The Romans Invade’. We will be exploring this topic, learning through several other areas of the curriculum such as: Geography and Art. In Geography we will be thinking about where Rome is located in the world and its physical features. In Art the children will be making and painting mosaics.

Keeping to our theme, in English, we will be looking at Traditional Tales through the story of Romulus and Remus. Year 4 will be working extremely hard to improve their writing, thinking about how they might engage the reader and creating more complex sentences to experiment with alternative ways of opening a story using,   either description, action, or dialogue.

Number and place value; all four operations; mental maths and problem solving will be taught during maths lessons. Children are encouraged to know their times tables fluently.

In Science we will be learning about Sound in more detail: what causes sound; how sound travels; and how we hear sound.

P.E. will be taught on Monday and Wednesday afternoons. This half term we will be focusing on cross country, speed stacking, gymnastics and tennis. Please ensure your child/children have their P.E. kits at school for every lesson. Children wearing earrings will be expected to either put tape over their earrings or to remove them.
