LKS2 overview summer


Our topic for Summer term 2018 is ‘Rotten Romans’. We will be exploring Ancient Rome, focusing on the Roman empire, housing, diet and lifestyles.

We will explore and partake in many exciting lessons learning all about the Romans and how their history shaped our future.



The focus in Science for the first half term will be forces and magnets. We will be exploring forces, what a force is and the different types of forces. We will also investigate friction.

Within the next half term we will explore Science from Romans and famous Roman scientists.

See term overview for more detail.



Times Table practise

In year 3/4, the recall of multiplication facts are very important. We encourage you to practise regularly with your child, from x2 up to x12 tables. Here are some websites you could use;

It is a government expectation that all children, by the end of Year 4, know all of their times table facts.



We would like your children to read at least three times a week. Children will receive a ‘book worm’ certificate weekly for regular reading.


Maths homework will be sent out every Thursday and due in the next Wednesday.

Spellings will be given out on Monday and tested on Friday.



Our P.E days are, usually, on Monday and Wednesday. Please make sure that your child has their full indoor/outdoor P.E kit in school. Also make sure that your child has taken out their earrings or has tape over their earrings.




If your child requires medical attention in school please contact Mrs Nicholls and complete the relevant forms to keep school updated and keep your child safe in school.
