This week’s Learning at a glance

This week’s learning in Year 4 at a glance!

 

Year 4

Learning Link: All Roads Lead to Rome

We hope the children will enjoy their trip back in time when we learn about those Rotten Romans and the country they came from. We will be learning about the location of Italy within Europe, its main regions and cities and making comparisons to Britain. Through these comparisons we will be able to understand why the Romans came to Britain and what exactly they did for us. Alongside the History and Geography, we will also be studying stories with a Historic setting including ‘Androcles and the Lion,’ and ‘Escape from Pompeii.’

In Art, we look at Roman murals and mosaics, as an art form and a source of historical evidence.  We will also be baking some Roman style bread as part of our DT topic.
