Welcome to 4RH

The 4RH team includes Miss Hall, Miss Wainman.

This term's topic is...


We will be asking the question what did the Romans ever do for us?

To answer this we will be learning about who were the Romans, when did they live and what did Britain look like at the time compared to now?  Also we will be learning about timelines, putting Roman places on the map compared to UK places now. This we lead to us investigating Roman art, specifically the architecture and mosaics. We will discover what life held for Roman soldiers. Finally in music we will be listening to the planets by Holst and find the links between the music and the Roman Gods.



We will be reading books that fit in with our Roman Topic this term including:

A Roman Rescue by Gerrard and Dodd
A Roman Bean Feast by Gillian Cross

Also we will be reading The Twits by Roald Dahl in preparation for some work next term.
