What a wonderful start to the year for Hawks class. The class have settled into their routines well and have begun a super learning journey.
In English, we began our book Revolt Against the Romans and answered comprehension questions for each chapter; we also started looking at building and improving sentences through creative stimuli.
In Maths, we have done some sterling work on place value - fundamental to our understanding of number - and have now moved onto addition and subtraction, before area and multiplication & division.
In History, we are enquiring 'What was the impact of the Romans on Britain?', and so far have looked at where the Roman Empire originated and why it became so powerful. We also went on a trip to the Roman fortress of Isca (now Caerleon), saw some ancient Roman artefacts, marched like a Roman leigon and learned all sorts of interesting facts about the local area.
Please check on Seesaw for what we are doing in class, and should you have any queries, please email me at email@example.com or send me a message on Seesaw.
All the best,
A fabulous start to the Spring term saw us start our new topic - What were the achievements of Ancient Egypt - and our new class book: Secrets of a Sun King by Emma Carroll. The first chapter left us all on the edge wondering what the mysterious package was all about!
Some new spellings (our last ones of the term!) for the children to practice. What common sounds can you see? Are they spelled the same?
The same sound and spelling rule this week :-)
Spellings for Year 4 this week. Can you recognise the sound?
Spellings (a little late) for this week :-)

Spellings for the first week back:
It's a new week so here are some new spellings for Year 4 - they have over half term as well for these ones :)
Some new spellings this week - please go over their meanings with the children to help build their vocabulary.
A great effort with spellings this week - keep at it with these new ones!
A new week so some new spellings :-)
After lots of practice this week, we will have our first spelling test on Monday on the following words:
