Welcome to year 4. 

.Our first amazing topic is a study of the Romans. We begin by linking this topic to work from the last year on the Iron Age, looking at Celtic Tribes, settlements and lifestyles. We will make Celtic houses and  be designing Celtic warrior costumes. We will be studying why the Roman Army was so successful and lead to the rapid growth of the empire.  Roman army training day and a mock battle will finish this first part of the topic.

After half term, a visit to Fishbourne Roman Palace and interactive workshop on Roman life will kick off a study of the legacy of the Romans. 


I look forward to meeting you all soon.
