Year 4 Rowan

This terms topic in year 4 has been the Romans and we have been investigating Gladiators. We were then developing non-chronological reports report about the different champions and their achievements. We are now moving on to creating a diary entry in the style of a Roman.


As part our Worldwide Learning, we discovered a Roman artefact on our school grounds. We are going to write a newspaper report about the exciting discovery! We have also explored and created Roman mosaics.


In Maths we have been revisiting place value and now have started to improve our addition and subtraction skills using 4 digit numbers. The classes were both selected to demonstrate their Maths skills to other teachers.  


During the last few weeks we have been rehearsing the harvest festival performance and are nearly ready to perform (the show will be on Thursday 19th October at 9am).


In Science, Year 4 have been learning about electricity and we have made and tested a number of circuits.


In Music we have been honing our recorder skills and now are able to play two different tunes using a variety of notes.


We have been enjoying our PSHCE lessons (Jigsaw). Our favourite activity was making a tower to help understand teamwork and roles within a team.
