Year 4 Giraffes

Colchester Castle Visit

Autumn 2

The children have had a fantastic first term in Year 4, producing extraordinary suspense stories.

This term we will be studying the Romans and following them on their Journey from Rome to Colchester. The children will make Roman Shields and learn the invasion tactics the Romans used to conquer over other Regions. In English, we will be persuading people to join the Roman army as well as continuing our talk for writing when learning the story 'Attack of the Colesseum!

In Maths we will be working hard on our number bonds to 100, learning how to tell the time and introducing decimal numbers. These can all be supported at home through the use of Mathletics.

Remember to read 3 times per week to earn that reading star!
