This is what we will be covering this year:

Our topic this term:

 The Romans 

This term we will be finding out about who lived in Ancient Rome and what daily life was like for them. We will be exploring how the Roman Empire grew and ended and what happened when the Romans tried to invade Britain. Also, we will be finding out what legacy the Romans left that is still visible in our lives today. In addition, we will be exploring Roman style art through clay containers and mosaics.



In year 4, we complete reading, spellings, times tables, a skills sheet and projects.


On a MONDAY we are tested on our times tables. It says in our diaries which one we need to learn and we have 45 seconds to complete 12 questions.


On a TUESDAY we hand in our projects once a term. We can choose from different options but must turn them in via Google Classroom by the date given. The options, date and classroom code are stuck in our diaries and are in the document below.


On a THURSDAY we hand in our skills sheet and get given a new one. One week we have maths and the next week we get English. These sheets help us to practise skills we have been covering in class.


Reading should be completed at least 5 times each week and recorded in diaries. We change reading books when it says finished/end in the diary. Reading diaries must be signed by an adult each time the child reads. The number of times read is counted up on a FRIDAY.


On a FRIDAY we are tested on our spellings. They are stuck in the back of our home-school diaries and are on the document below.

Other Useful Information

  • This term, both classes with be swimming every Monday from 7th June to the 19th July inclusive. Children should wear full PE kit to school and bring swimwear (one piece costume for girls and tight fitting swim trunks for boys) and a small towel in a separate bag to their normal school bag.

Children can wear goggles if needed but they will be responsible for them and must be able to put them on independently.
