Year 4 - Panama 2022/23

Welcome to Panamas. 

We are really looking forward to working together in Year Four and have already been impressed with your fabulous attitude to learning. I am sure you are going to be very proud of yourselves this year. 

Your class teacher is Mrs Bloomer, while Mrs Taplin and Miss Beard are our Teaching assistants.

We have planned some amazing activities to help us learn about the impact the Romans had on Britain in our first topic: The Empire Strikes Back. In science, our work on rocks will complement this learning and our geography mapping skills will help us understand how the Romans spread across the Empire.

Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday. Please remember that our PE kit is a white t-shirt and black shorts/joggers with trainers. For the colder months we have a bottle green hoodie with school logo or the children can wear their usual jumper. Children need to come to school in their full PE kit on PE days.


This half term (Autumn 1) we will be carrying out a topic called The Empire Strikes Back where we will learn about the Romans – focusing on their transport and technology developments. We will also be learning how to create and read maps. In science, we will be learning about rocks and soils. For English, we will be reading stories based in Roman times to help us develop our writing skills. In maths, we will be learning about place value as well as beginning to learn our times tables.


In year 4, the children complete a times table check in June. Throughout the year, we will be focusing on ensuring the children can quickly recall their times tables up to 12 x 12. Further information about this can be found on our times tables page.
