Year 4

The Roman Era

‘This term year 4 are going to be learning about the Roman era, as well as volcanoes. We will have cross curricular links to English, where the children will read ‘Escape From Pompeii’ by Christina Balit, and also ‘The Firework Maker’s Daughter’ by Phillip Pullman. Our ‘Powerful Project’ will allow the children to create their own pop-up books, and provide them with the opportunity to design and create a range of pop-up mechanisms.

As part of our exciting topic, we are taking the children on a fantastic trip to the Roman fort of Chester (Deva). We will be taking part in a workshop at the Grosvenor Museum, which will entail a tour around the museum and, best of all, the chance to take a trip back into history and get dressed up as Roman soldiers. The trip to Chester will bring the Roman’s to life, allow the children to explore life in Roman Chester, and to investigate the Romanisation of Britain.
