Topic: The Radical Romans
Welcome to Year 4! This half term our topic will be 'The Radical Romans'. We will be looking at two new texts in English, with a focus of newspaper and persuasive writing. In Maths we will be strengthening our knowledge of place value and calculation as well as learning Roman Numerals.
During the afternoon sessions, we will be creating Roman mosaic art. Additionally, we will be looking at where the Romans settled in Geography and put our research into a timeline in History. To enhance our learning and understanding of the Romans, we will be visiting the Dewa Roman Museum in Chester.
