Welcome to Year 4.
I would like to say a big thank you to all the children for their hard work at school during these unusual times. They have all worked hard and produced some fantastic work. It all started with some amazing Roman homework.
Our topic this half term is going to be about the Groovy Greeks– the children will learn about all the amazing aspects of Ancient Greece. The topic will include aspects of literacy and we will be reading a book called Greek Warriors in the Time Hunter series. If you could get your own copy that will be great. We will also be looking at Greek Myths.
Here are some of the other exciting things we will be learning this half term.
Time Hunter – Greek Warriors
