Ancient Romans

Y4 enjoyed a fantastic day being Ancient Romans. The children had lots of fun learning all about Roman society through role-play and song. We also had a go at marching and Roman army tactics like the testudo or tortoise formation!


Year 4 are continuing their work on instructions. The children followed a set of instructions and made an edible Roman road and also Ancient Roman bread which we then enjoyed eating warm straight from the oven! The children then wrote their own instructions and even suggested ways of improving the recipes.

States of Matter Topic


As part of our science States of Matter topic, Y4 enjoyed demonstrating the properties of particles in solids, liquids and gases.  We then showed the particle structure of each state using dotty stickers.

Year 4 have been thinking about Jesus' family tree in Advent by making a Jesse tree. 

Care for Creation, Community and Participation

Year 4 have been very busy out in the community surveying the land next to the railway tracks on Goldsmith Avenue. They have been thinking about care for creation and community and participation. Following their surveys, they plan to write to the council and Network Rail, asking them to clean the area up and offering suggestions for the use of the land. 

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard

Year 4 visited Portsmouth Historic Dockyard as part of our Inspiring British Figures topic. We went on board HMS Victory. It is the Royal Navy’s most famous warship and is best known for her role as Vice-Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson’s flagship in the Battle of Trafalgar. We saw the spot where Nelson fell and we experienced how life was like for the crew at the time.


Year 4 had fun making telephones in Science as part of our topic. We tried them out in the playground.



In PE, we have been performing a variety of floor movements in gymnastics. We looked at various jumps including the cat leap half turn and the straight jump full turn. We also performed various rolls like forward roll and the teddy roll. We linked the different movements together to perform a short routine.
