Year 4



Mr Irons/Mrs Constable



Mrs Dunn/Mrs Tyler



Mr Lindsey


Miss McLellan



Welcome back to a new school year. We all hope you had a well deserved break and are ready for the year ahead.

We will continue to work hard to get the best improvement out of the children and to make the year as enjoyable as we can.  As parents/guardians it would be of great benefit to aid us in this by getting the children to read for 20 minutes each evening and to sign their diaries to say they have done so.  We expect the pupils to write into their diaries what book they have read along with what pages and parents/guardians to just initial.


I am Warrior

This year we will be studying a range of different topics.  In this term we will be working through I am Warrior!

I am Warrior! I am strong, brave and powerful. Meet me in battle. Draw your sword, wield your axe and challenge me if you dare! Invade and attack, Romans versus Celts, the fight is on…..

Discover warring Britain: meet Claudius, Boudicca and Julius Caesar, and find our what the Romans did for us.

Get ready for Gladiator school and learn alongside Spartacus and Spiculus: brave fighters for the Roman Colosseum.

When all that battling makes you hungry, relax, lie back and feast yourself on dormice and grapes, or perhaps a roasted swan sprinkled with nuts?


Term 1:  I am Warrior
Term 2: Blue Abyss
Term 3: Burps, Bottoms and Bile
Term 4: Playlist
Term 5: Road Trip USA
