Context for Learning

Our current ‘Context for Learning’ is Developing an Empire - The Romans. This unit has a focus on the Roman empire and its impact on Britain.

We will look at who the Romans were, why they invaded Britain, their legacy of town and road building, Hadrian's wall and who Boudica was.

In Geography, we will be learning about rainforests. We will be developing an understanding of biomes, ecosystems and tropics; mapping features of the Amazon rainforest and learning about its layers; investigating how communities in Manaus use the Amazon’s resources; discussing the global human impact on the Amazon; and carrying out fieldwork to compare and contrast two types of forest.

Supporting at Home

Parents are the biggest influence on a child so it is hugely important that we work together to support each other.

Supporting your child with their reading, learning times tables and homework has a huge impact. This is hugely appreciated.

We encourage parents to take the time to talk to their child about what they have done in school and show an interest. Also, to become involved in school life by checking the school website, following Twitter, reading the school newsletters and checking for any announcements or messages on Seesaw.

Parents can make a huge contribution to the school by supporting the PTA and attending events such as the Christmas fair.

Remember we are here to support each other so we encourage you to contact the school and speak to the class teacher if you are worried about anything.  

At the end of Summer Term 2, Y4 children will be taking part in the MTC - multiplication tables check, further details about this can be found on the attachment below.
