Year 4

The Romans – Autumn Term

Did the Roman Legacy really help us?

I am warrior! I am strong, brave and powerful.  Meet me in battle.  Draw your sword, wield your axe and challenge me if you dare!

This term we will be travelling back in time to explore the Roman period. We will be identifying key events within this period and the historical figures from the era. We will discover warring Britain: meet Claudius, Boudicca, Pliny the Elder and Julius Caesar, and find out what the Romans did for us.

In Art and D&T, we will be looking at Roman artefacts, and designing and creating our own Roman shields!

Get ready for Gladiator school and learn alongside Spartacus and Spiculus: brave soldiers of the Roman Colosseum.

European Tour – Spring Term

What will we discover on a European tour?

This term our topic learning will be delivered virtually because of the National Lockdown. We hope you enjoy the activities that your teacher sets you whilst at home

Invaders and Settlers – Summer Term

Who was the greatest invader?

This term we will be focusing on the Smashing Saxons and the Vicious Vikings!

We will be learning all about where both groups came from before they invaded Britain and settled. We will investigate daily life and how their fascinating beliefs influenced how their kingdoms were organised. In addition to this, we will investigate some of the tensions and the battles between the two groups and how a peace treaty was able to be signed.

We will be introduced to various significant figures from that time: Edward the Confessor, Alfred the Great, King Athelstan and King Redwald.

In D&T, we will be designing a Saxon piece of jewellery and in art, we will be creating a Viking collage of the boats they used.

See you on the battlefield, Year Four!
