As a wow finish to our topic, we enjoyed a rotation of different fun activities including:
- Designing advertisement posters on the computer to promote a gladiator fight.
- Colour by Roman numerals.
- Comparing and drawing Celt and Roman warriors.
- Described street scenes.
- Creating Roman Gods and Goddesses
- Painting our Roman coins.
We had a great time and produced some beautiful work.
The children have started the Taking Care project which will run until half term. The aim of the project is to empower children to feel safe and learn protective behaviours. Look out for the network cards and stickers which the children may share at home!
We loved our guided reading lesson exploring our new text Varjak Paw. We read the blurb and then watched the film trailer to discover more. We discussed both, highlighting the similarities and differences between the two. We are so excited to find out more!
What do you think will happen?
We had a brilliant time at Bosworth Battlefield where we had a special Roman day. We met a Roman soldier who taught us how to march and chant like a legionary. We met a Roman slave who taught us how to prepare for a banquet and then we visited the Forum. In the Forum we made Roman coins, wrote in our names in Roman using a quill and ink, looked at real Roman artefacts and dressed up too!
We’re very proud of how well behaved Year 4 were, it was even commented upon by the staff at the Battlefield 🙂
We loved our first tag rugby session with The Wasps. We played lots of team games where we worked well together. Well done to Chloe, who was picked as ‘Wasp of the Week’ by the coaches Alex and Simon.
We hope you all had a wonderful summer holiday.
Year 4 had a brilliant first day settling in. We discussed new beginnings in our PSHE lesson and made some class rules together. Later on we launched our Rotten Romans topic by watching a Gladiators cartoon! We had a great first day 🙂
