Year 4

SPRING 2018:

This half term we are saying “Ave” to one another, enjoying new straight roads and marvelling at the mighty Testudo. That’s right; we are welcoming our new Roman overlords and the civilisation they bring!

In History this half term we will be looking at the history of Roman Britain, finding out why they wanted to come here in the first place. I have a feeling it wasn’t for the weather!
We will look at how the Romans were superior to the indigenous Celts and why this ensured 400 years of Roman dominance.

Your bright sparks will learn about electrical circuits in Science and explore terms such as conductor and insulator, practically making circuits, before examining the science of sound.

In English we are currently looking at the persuasive power of the media, and are going to become reporters for our own newspapers; move over Piers Morgan!

In PE we will be continuing with our swimming and MUFC coaches ON MONDAY AND TUESDAY so please make sure you remember your kits!

Reading is so important to your child’s development both now and in the future so please make sure reading is done at least 3 times a week.
