We will be publishing what we are learning during each term throughout the year. Watch this space to see what is happening in Term 3 in and out of the classroom and for useful information for Aspen and Rowan classes.
Well done Year 4
Year 4 have had an amazing term! Building on the exciting start to our Roman topic, we have explored deeper to understand the daily lives of Roman citizens and soldiers. Using this knowledge, we have critically evaluated how the Roman Empire expanded and how the affected the rest of the world, most notably Britain. This inspired our outcome in Literacy, which was a newspaper article which reported upon the conflict between the Romans and Boudicca the British Leader.
Discovering the Roman Empire
Year 4 have had an exciting start to the term, exploring what life was like in the Roman Empire.
To begin our topic, we created Roman shields, which were put into practice when we had the opportunity to learn formations used by the Roman soldiers. Next, we investigated a range of Roman inventions and analysed the impact these inventions have had on Britain today.
We are looking forward to learning more about the Romans, especially the rise of Boudicca and the impact she had on the Roman Empire. We will then be applying the knowledge to our Literacy unit this term, as we will be taking on the role of journalists and creating newspaper articles linked to heroes in the Roman era.
