Roman Remains

This half term we will be studying the lives of the Romans and learning about how they have affected modern day life.

Alongside this, we will also be creating Roman Bullas in DT. In PSHE we will be looking at the skills necessary to make us ‘Year 4 Ready’ to support our transition into Year 4.
