This term, our topic is The Romans. In class, we will be looking at what the Romans did and how they have impacted us today including the spread of the Roman Empire, Boudicca’s rebellion, roads, food and Gods. As part of our learning, we will also be going to Colchester Castle.
In English, we will start by completing our letters before moving on to narrative writing. We will continue to focus on our objectives of fronted adverbials, subordinate clauses and expanded noun phrases. I hope that you can remember all of your hard work on synonyms and antonyms.
Our Maths focus this half term will be multiplication and division. We will be learning and applying a range of mental and formal methods. Later in the half term, we will start looking at fractions.
Science this half term is all about electricity. We will be researching scientists involved in electricity, identifying electrical appliances, designing and creating our own circuits and investigating insulators and conductors.
Welcome back! We hope you have all had a lovely summer and are ready to start Year 4. On Wednesday, please make sure you remember to bring in your PE kit and a blue handwriting pen.
This term our topic is Woodlands which means we will have plenty of opportunities to explore outside and to also visit Fingringhoe Wick Nature Reserve. In Geography, we will be investigating the trees in our local area and discussing the changes in our environment.
Our literacy work is based around the text Little Evie in the Wild Wood and we will be learning how to write effective descriptive texts, poetry and narrative texts. We will also be looking at the features of non-chronological reports and creating our own educational leaflet.
In maths, we will start by looking at Roman Numerals and moving on to place value. We will be carrying out investigations, problem solving and working on providing reasoning for our answers.
Our science work will interlink with our topic as we will be studying habitats and looking at the life processes and investigating food chains.
