Welcome to Class SA
Miss Anderson is one half of the Year 4 team and loves working alongside Miss Bingham! She is very excited about all the fantastic topics she has planned for her new class and can't wait to get started! Miss Anderson will be leading English this year and has lots of fun activities planned for the whole school to enjoy, including World Book Day!
Our topic this half term will be ‘The Roaming Romans’. We will be finding out about the Roman invasion of Britain, the Boudicca Rebellion and life as a Roman soldier.
In English we will be learning to write newspaper reports, creating a report on the founding of Rome.
In Maths, we will be continuing our work on fractions and linking this with decimals and money. We will also link our topic to our maths by studying Roman Numerals.
Studying maps in Geography, we will investigate how and where the Romans invaded Britain, looking closely at our local history and finding links to the Romans VERY close to us! Writtle heritage will be coming in to school to help us with our investigations.
To end our topic we will be finding out what it was like to be a Roman Solider and design and create our own shields ready for our very own Roman battle!
We will also continue our swimming lessons for 5 more weeks this half term, lessons will be on a Monday afternoon, don't forget your swimming things, including a towel and swimming hat.
Please remember to bring your PE kit into school on the first day back. Girls, you will need to tie long hair back and remove earrings. We will hopefully be going outside this half term if the weather allows so please have an outdoor kit too.
All homework, ( Maths and Topic) to be handed in on a Tuesday morning. Your spellings will be set on a Monday and tested the following week. Your Topic and Maths homework is set on a Thursday.
