Roman Day!

This week, we had a fabulous Tuesday as Ancient Romans. The children learned to speak some Latin and to use Roman numerals. They invented their own Roman gods and goddesses and indulged in a feast. Here are some pictures of Seal Class enjoying the day. Thank you to parents for all your efforts with costumes and food!

Roman Day Homework!

As you know, on Tuesday next week we will be having our Ancient Roman day. For homework this week, we would like the children to make something to wear on that day. They might want to be a slave, a soldier, a gladiator, a wealthy citizen, an emperor or even a Roman god or goddess!

Here are some links and ideas which we hope will give you inspiration!

Plea for kitchen towel rolls

Hello

A big plea from Year 4 for any kitchen towel rolls that you could bring in to school rather than recycle. We need them for making Ancient Roman bracelets! We cannot take toilet rolls for hygiene reasons but kitchen towel rolls would be brilliant.

Many thanks

The Year 4 Team

Homework due 5th July

BoughBeech_banner

Over the last three weeks, we have all been on our trip to Bough Beech reservoir and water treatment centre. For homework this week, we would like you to create something to show us what you learned on the trip. You could write a recount of the trip, create a science flowchart showing the water treatment process, explain what happens at the reservoir and why. These are only suggestions – use your creativity and show us what you learnt in your own way.

In spelling this week, we have learned the following words from the Year 3/4 spelling list:

Complete, consider, continue, decide, describe, different, difficult, disappear, early and earth.
