Year 3 and 4

Welcome to 2017 in Y3/4!


We hope you had an amazing break and are looking forward to all the exciting things coming this spring term.  Our topic this half-term is Roman York, Eboracum.  We have already had an amazing stunning start with the children creating Roman banners, bulla purses and charms and mosaics.  Why not take a look in our school reception area at our amazing art work?


This half-term, we will be looking at the Roman origins of our amazing city.  We will be discovering why the Romans came to Britain and why building a city here was so important.  We will be designing Roman soldiers, use drama to create our very own Senate and begin to understand how the Romans shaped our
lives today.

In maths, we
will be focusing on multiplication, division and fractions.  As a school, we are continuing to develop greater use of investigations and ‘hands on’ maths to help children to understand some of these mathematical concepts.


In literacy, we will be looking at Roman mythology and story-telling.  This will lead into work on dialogue and scripts.


Y3/4LB will start swimming this week.  Everyone in this class will need to remember their swimming kit on Fridays: swimwear, a towel and goggles.  If you have long hair, please remember to bring a bobble to tie your hair back.
