                      Bluebirds Roman Assembly


Our exciting class assembly on The Romans is in rehearsal! Please listen to the sound track and learn the words of this fun Roman song. Beware, it's catchy!!

Live like a Roman sound track

Welcome to the Autumn term in Year 4! We've got lots of exciting activities based around our topic of Roman Life  in Britain. We'll be finding out what the Romans did for Britain and how they changed life here forever!  We'll also be writing stories set in this historical time period and a persuasion text based on Boudicca.

In science we are exploring Light through a variety of hands-on investigations. 

We are lucky to be having fortnightly cricket sessions this half term on Mondays, for the Bluebirds in weeks 3, 5 and 7 and the Woodpeckers in weeks 4, 6 and 8. Please could children wear PE kits to school for this.

Normal PE lessons will be on Wednesdays, again please wear PE kits on these days.

Book changing will happen on Mondays and Thursdays. A sticker will be put on the front of your child's reading diary so you know which day you are allocated. Please try hard to stick to these days only for bringing diaries into school.  

Spelling lists will be given out on a Friday and tested on the following Thursday. The words will be sent out with the Learning Conversations on Fridays.
