Year 4 Curriculum

The Romans – Life and Legacy

Our new topic will focus on The Romans and will extend from Spring 2 into Summer 1. We will begin with ‘Life and Legacy’, where we will investigate the legacy of Roman culture and its impact on Britain. We will explore life across Roman society (both work and leisure), the buildings and roads they constructed, along with exploring how Roman rule-breakers would be punished. This will lead on to our Summer 1 focus of ‘Romans on the Rampage’ where we will focus on the growth of the life as a soldier, the growth of the empire, invasions and resistance. Whilst we won’t be dressing up this year, we are looking forward to celebrating our love of reading on World Book Day on Thursday 4th March. For our Marvellous Middle, we will create some Roman structures ‘with a twist’- I won’t spoil the surprise! For our Fabulous Finish we will share our virtual ‘Roman Museum’ where we will be showcasing our work from the half term.
