Autumn Term 2022

Rotten Romans

1   2 3 

Welcome back Year 4. We hope you had a super summer holiday with lots of exciting memories to share. This term, our topic theme is 'Rotten Romans' and we'll be asking the question: "What did the Romans Do For Us?"

During the course of the term, we will be taking a historical look back on how the Roman Empire was created; how the empire expanded across so many countries; daily life during Roman times contrasting Italy with England; Roman life in Lincoln and why our city was such an important staging post plus Boudicca's revolt. Through all of this, we will investigate how the Romans changed our lives and the legacy they have left.

As part of the whole school French Cultural Day, Salisbury class enjoyed various activities all with a French theme. The day started with playing Lotto with the children recalling their knowledge of French numbers; we visited the 'pop up' French cafe to order items from the petit dejeuner menu which was followed by time researching where key French cities are located and using our geography skills to answer questions about the physical and human geography of the country. In the afternoon, we undertook a small art project: producing a print of the Eiffel Tower using the pointillism style while others applied thier DT skills and had a go at constructing a model of the Eiffel Tower using straws. Finally, we all played petanque in the sunshine.

French Breakfast

The class thoroughly enjoyed their ‘petit-dejeuner’. Great speaking skills applied when ordering in French.

Year 4 have been celebrating Shrove Tuesday by linking all their learning to this exciting day. Our maths linked to scaling recipes depending on how many people we were cooking for. This was useful as we made a batter mix, as part of English and DT skills. The original recipe was for 8 people, and we needed enough for the whole class. We wrote up a recipe for our batter which we later cooked to produce pancakes that we went on to enjoy with a selection of toppings. Plus, we learnt about the reasons why we celebrate Shrove Tuesday, with RE links to Rev. Al’s assembly, along with traditions from around the UK. To finish our day, we had pancake races on the school field. Lots of fun experiential learning as well as smiley faces.
