For our final term in year four, we are travelling back in time to the Roman era - what an excellent way to end a fantastic year. We will be learning all about the Roman empire and its impact on Britain, using this to bring to life our learning across the curriculum. From Roman Mosaics to Mount Vesuvius through to cooking an Italian dish, our final term is set to be a Roman extravaganza! Keep checking back to see our learning this term - we can't wait to share our work with you!

Our current focus in English is persuasion. Having participated in a persuasive debate last week, we are now working hard to fine tune our persuasive skills by learning some of the devices we could include to really persuade our audience. Over the next two weeks, we will be learning all about...
- rhetorical questions
- exaggeration
- superlatives
- repetition
- the power of three
- emotive language

In maths this week, we are learning all about Roman Numerals. Who knew the Roman's number system was so different to our number system now? Once we got our heads around the letters, we began writing numbers from 1 to 20. We learnt a really catchy song to help us remember the numerals. Tomorrow, we will be continuing to learn how to write Roman Numerals up to 100! It will be a challenge but we are ready for it!
I = 1
V = 5
X = 10
L = 50
C = 100

Useful Information
Homework - We will be giving out homework every Friday. This needs to be handed in by the following Thursday. The homework will alternate between maths and English and will link to our learning from that week. We will also be sending home a spelling list each week (in the children's new spelling books!). We will be testing these spellings every Friday.
In addition, we ask that you continue to listen to your child read on a regular basis at home, as well as helping them to learn their times tables. We really appreciate your support with this as it makes a huge difference to their learning in school.

PE - We have outdoor PE on a Thursday and indoor PE on a Friday. Please make sure that your child has the correct kit so that everyone can participate!
