Welcome to Otter class in Year 4! This half term, we will be learning all about The Romans in Britain and this will be taught across the curriculum. In English, we will be learning about Non-Chronological reports. We will be looking at instructions and recipes and learning how to write our own as well as follow the instructions. We will be kicking off our unit by making our own Roman honey cakes!
In Maths, we will be learning all about measurement! We will measure in millimetres, centimetres, metres and kilometres. We will also be learning to find the perimeter of shapes! We will continue to practise our times tables every day so that the children know all the way up to 12x12 by the end of the year. Continue to practise these at home!
In guided reading, we will be reading a book called “A Series of Unfortunate Events” by Lemony Snicket. This is a book about a group of children that overcome a very unfortunate situation!
In History, we will be learning all about The Romans in Britain. We will be learning about who the Romans were, why they came to Britain, how the Romans lived and why the Romans left and the empire fell. The children will recieve their homework on the Romans where they can continue their research at home. This is optional, but will be due on 14/12/20. Please make sure your child brings in their homework book on Friday 6th November.
In science, we will be learning all about sound and how sound travels in waves. We will do lots of activities based on sound and apply it to our unit in music!
In computing, we will be coding and programming using a program called Scratch. Please continue to reinforce ESafety at home and have conversations about how to be safe online with your child.
Please continue to check back on the class page, as I will continue to post pictures and share information about what we are up to!
