Welcome  to Year 4.

We have been working on the Cut-throat Celts and Roaming Romans since January – this was going to run up until Easter. While you are at home, why don’t you have a look and see if there is anything else that you could do towards the topic that we haven’t covered due to the school closure. This is our Spring-2-Topic-Web for lots of related ideas.
