In Year 4 this term we are focusing on The Romans and how they became a vast empire. We will also be focusing on how the Roman invasion changed Britain and what impact this has had on our society today.
In our history lessons we have taken part in debates to decide whether the Celts should fight back against Roman invasion, researched the importance of Julius Caesar and Boudicca on the Roman Army, written diary entries from the perspective of someone building Hadrian's Wall and evaluated historical sources from Roman Britain to rank them from most reliable to least reliable.
Our topic this half term is Art Attack.
We are looking at art in nature and have studied and copied animal patterns.
We are now learning drawing techniques to add shade.
Our homework was to create an animal sculpture to decorate the classroom.
Look at these amazing sculptures we have created using cardboard, paper, clay and even lego!
In Geography this half term, we have used atlases to look at the physical features of Spain and compared them to the UK's.
In Science, we have started our topic Sound. We started by writing about what we already know and what we would like to find out. Then, we conducted some experiments to found out how make sounds. See some photos below.
A huge thank you to all the parents of Year 4!!
Miss Peat and I would like to thank all the parents in Year 4 for the fantastic support they have been giving to the children, during this challenging time. We acknowledge the struggles and difficulties that home learning brings and wanted to take this opportunity to say we really appreciate the help and support with the children as, without it, home learning wouldn't be possible.
