Year 4 Class Autumn 1 Topic – ‘I am Warrior’

posted in: Year 4 News | 0

This half term our new project is called ‘I am Warrior’. The focus of this project is History, and focuses on the Romans and Celts. See below for more information about the project along with ideas for extra activities you can be doing at home.

“We are brave, powerful warriors, and we will meet in battle!

This half term, we’ll research Celtic and Roman warriors and write soliloquies as soldiers. Using different source materials we’ll investigate the Roman Empire and read Roman numerals. We will design and make clay coins based on real life coins that have been discovered. The Celtic warrior queen, Boudicca, will inspire us to create stories, models and artwork. We’ll write plays about gladiators and a menu for wealthy Romans. Using maps, globes and information books, we’ll compare Britain (the home of the Celts) and Rome (the home of the Romans).

At the end of the half term, we’ll reflect on what the Romans did for us. We’ll become archaeologists, examining and sorting artefacts. 

Help your child with their project

The Romans changed the course of England’s history. Why not look at Roman artefacts online to see what you can learn about the Romans? You could also look at holiday brochures and online information to find out about modern day Rome. Which tourist attractions would you like to visit? Help them design and make a Roman shield as one of their homework activities.
