Year 4

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.

What will we discover on a European Tour?- Spring Term

This term will be geography focused! The children will have the opportunity to learn all about key landmarks within the United Kingdom, around Europe and in Russia. The children will be taught to name and locate counties and cities of the United Kingdom and identify their features – as well as locating countries in Europe using maps.

Our main focus will be to identify key landmarks around the world and showcase this through our art work. We will be exploring the work of Augustus Pugin, Ginette Calloway, Gustave Eiffel and Bonanno Pisano, as part of our art and design research. In art and D&T, we will produce sketches of our favourite landmarks and create our own Russian dolls!
