To love, learn and grow together

Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

Our Summer term topic is

Invaders!

Our current text is Roman Diary by Richard Platt...The year is AD102 and Iliona, an educated Greek girl, has been orphaned and sold as a slave in Rome. Through her eyes we will explore the Roman army return from wars and witness Gladiators fighting in the famous ampitheatre.

Our writing will focus on non-chronological reports as well as persuasive and explanation texts.  Our grammar focus will be on standard English and applying fronted adverbials and speech in paragraphs. We will continue to practise words from the year 4 statutory word list and apply prefixes in spellings. Our history focus is on the impact of the Romans in Britain and why they invaded. We will explore the resistance of the Celtic tribes and their legacy.

Our topics in Science are on animals including humans and sound.

In Maths this term, we will learn about money, time and statistics before moving onto the properties of shape in geometry. We are also preparing for the national MTC, practising our times table recall. In RE we will reflect on what it means to be a Hindu in Britain today. Creating media and photo editing is our first task for computing, followed by collecting, analysing and representing data.
