Year 4

This term in Year 4 we’re taking a trip to a cultural and fun-filled country, as we explore life now and during the Romans in our wonderful new topic, “Italy,” which will be taught through a Creative Curriculum. We began with our Launch Day on Tuesday 9th January,  when we learned lots about what life is like in Italy, including their culture, food and famous landmarks. We also pretended to be soldiers in a Roman army, marching towards our enemy and invading villages. Our day was also filled with craft activities, making gondolas and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. We also tasted some interesting and delicious Italian food.
