Year 4

Hello and welcome to Year 4!

I hope you all had a great, well rested half term. This term our topic will be “Why do we speak English?” Our aim is that through enquiries learners should be able to tell their own coherent story of their and other people’s pasts. We use the development of English as a vehicle for visiting Roman Empire and its impact on Britain. As well as the historical focus we will also be using geographical skills to compare different regions from different periods of time and we will also focus in on the Roman influence in Sea Mills as a local study.

We will be supported in class this term by our LSAs Mrs Lloyd and Mr Smith. If you have any questions or queries, please see me in class after school.

Displays and Children’s Work
Take a look at some of our work and sometimes us in the classroom. You are always welcome to come into school and take a closer look. You can see from the displays in our classrooms the variety of topics we cover. As the year progresses, the displays change. By July, you will be able to see the whole range of subjects we have covered. Our Working walls help us learn – the content builds as the term progresses.
