What to Expect in Year Four
This term, we will travel back in time to the Roman period within our topic of ‘Romans Rule’. Throughout the half term, we will find out where the Romans came from and why they came to Britain. We will also research what it takes to be a Roman soldier and will locate Roman baths within Great Britain. In addition to this, we will learn about daily life in Roman times.
In English, we will be studying David Walliams’ ‘Gangsta Granny’ in order to write our own stories, involving speech. We will also be writing a character description of the main character, Granny. Later in the term, we will be focusing on explanation texts linked to our topic ‘The Romans’.
In Maths, we will be looking at length and perimeter before moving on to multiplication and division. We will be continuing our mastery approach by using concrete resources before moving onto pictorial and abstract methods.
In Science, we are learning all about ‘Animals, including humans’. We will be exploring the different types and functions of teeth and investigating how liquids damage our teeth. We will also be learning about the journey of food through the digestive system.
