What are we studying this term? 

Our topic this term is 'The Romans.' Last half term, we learned about 'North America' and the children all really enjoyed learning about the continent of North America and researching the various states, as well as, studying the Native American's and their culture. Through our topical learning, we cover subjects including geography, history, art and design technology. As we study The Romans this term, we will find out about various aspects of Roman life during the Roman Empire, including the size and span of the empire, some of the emperors and the life of a soldier. We will also complete art lessons linked to the Romans, as well as look at their influence and legacy on life today.  
In Literacy lessons, children will learn about various writing styles and use specifically chosen texts to inspire their own writing. This term we will focus on fantasy stories, poetry and information texts.  
In Maths this term, our lessons will cover shape and space, perimeter and area and recap on previously learned work, especially multiplication and addition.  
In Science this term, the children will be learning about Living thing and their Habitats and Animals including Humans.  
Through their ICT lessons in year 4, the children have done some great work using Scratch for programming. They will now be thinking about how to use Powerpoint. 
During RE lessons, the children will be learning about the Saints, as well as people who can inspire them. 
PE this term will include swimming, netball and athletics. The children will need indoor and outdoor kit in school this term. PE kit should be in school at all times. They should only be taken home at the end of a half term for washing, to avoid kit being left at home on days when it is needed. Please ensure your child has separate PE shoes for going outdoors. Wearing their school shoes for PE is not acceptable.

Spellings and homework: 

Remember to use the Spellodrome website to practice your spellings each week. 
Parents Please Note: 
If your child is using 'spellodrome live' they may not be practising their own spellings. This is a game aspect of the website which will help to learn general spellings but is not their actual word list for the week. Please check that your child is learning their own spellings as well as using the 'live' version of the website. Evidence of practice should also be completed in their spelling book each week. As the teacher, I am able to monitor the use of spellodrome.  
Remember spellings are tested every Tuesday and those who get all spellings correct get a Rainbow Reward!
