Our topic this term is Wroxeter and the Romans!
This topic will look at the history and geography of the local Roman city of Wroxeter, as well as the history of Romans in Britain more widely.
Our first unit of work will focus onnarrative letter writing.
It will use the book 'Beowulf' by Michael Morpurgo to explore this theme.
After half-term we will be exploring first person narrative recounts using the book 'Wisp: A Story of Hope' by Zana Fraillon.
This term the Year 4s will be looking at decimal fractions (tenths, hundredths, thousandths) before then investigating money and time.
The Year 3s will be working on a variety of new times tables before exploring fractions.
In late June the Year 4s will be doing their 'Multiplication Check'. They are given 6 seconds to answer timestables questions up to 12 x 12.
It is therefore really important to try to find time at home for your child to practise their timestables as practising them frequently is the only way to establish fluency in this area.
We are of course practicing these in school, but time and resources are limited and so individual practice at home is crucial.
I have linked to some resources at the bottom of this page which can be used to practise times tables fluency at home.

Our P.E. days are now Thursdays and Fridays, so can all pupils please come to school in their P.E. kits on these days.
It would be very helpful if earings are not worn on these swimming and P.E. days.
