Welcome to Year 4!
Our big question this half term is ‘Why were the Romans so powerful and what did we learn from them?’
We have started our new topic by looking at some Roman artefacts which the children really enjoyed looking at and learning about. This half-term we will be learning about who the Romans were and the history of events that took place during that time. Through this learning challenge question we will be making lots of links to geography, art/D&T, maths (Roman numerals) and literacy.
This term P.E will be on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Our P.E teacher will be leading the sessions on Wednesdays. Please can children make sure they have their full P.E kits in school on these days.
The children will also continue to receive a weekly guitar lesson this year. Mr Bergin will come to school every Tuesday for the session. The children have been working really hard and have made some good progress so far. I’m sure they will continue to excel their skills throughout the year.
In Year Four, we have also started our ‘Christmas Nativity’. The children have been working really hard to learn their parts and we are all super excited to preform our Nativity before the Christmas holidays.
Children are expected to take their book bags home and bring the back to school the next morning on a daily basis. Children need to make sure they read at home on a regular basis. I also expect children to practise their spellings as they will be tested on these in school and also make sure they are regularly practising their timetables. It is important that children practise their timetables as this year is the first year they will be nationally tested at the year.
If you have any questions or wish to discuss your child’s learning, please see me or any member of the Year Four team before or after school. We are always happy to share the exciting learning of the children.
