Summer Term

Romans in Britain


This term, the children will be studying 'Tiger, Tiger' by Lynne Reid Banks. Our supporting texts are, 'Escape from Pompeii' by Christina Balit and 'The Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore' by William Joyce. 



Most of our Summer Term writing is linked to our topic of 'Romans in Britain'. The children will be retelling the story of The Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore', writing a persuasive piece of writing on the theme of 'Zoos', a narrative poem about the Celtic warrior Boudicca, a letter from a Roman soldier, a Roman adventure story and cinquains.


At Bay Primary School, we follow the 'Maths No Problem!' scheme. We are focusing on 'Fractions, Decimals and Percentages' in the first half of the Summer term and moving onto 'Geometry', 'Position and Movement' and 'Time'. Children will also be taking the Year 4 Multiplication Test in June.


We are continuing with our 'Electricity' topic in the first half of the Summer Term and then moving onto 'Living Things and their Habitats'. Children will be involved in the five enquiries which are; Pattern Seeking, Observation over Time, Research using Secondary Sources, Comparative and Fair Test, Grouping, Identifying and Classifying. 


Our History topic is 'Romans in Britain'. We will be thinking about three main questions:

When did the Romans invade and why?

Did native Britons resist or welcome the Romans and why?

How did the Roman influence the culture of the people already in Britain? 


Our Geography lessons will be linked to our History work. We will be locating towns and cities that were once prominent Roman settlements and learning to use Ordnance Survey maps.


 In Art, we will be using ceramic mosaic to produce a piece of art, combining visual and tactile qualities, experimenting with different styles which artists have used and explaining art from other periods of history.

Design Technology 

Our Design Technology is linked to our earlier work on 'Electricity'. The children will design and make a battery powered torch.


In Computing, the children will be putting together a simple animation using paper to create a flick book, understanding animation frames and make a simple animation using 2Animate.


Our Music lessons this term will be delivered and taught by an external music teacher, Mrs. Quick. The children are learning to play Ukuleles.  

Religious Education 

Our topic this term is called 'Our World'.




The Summer Term topics are 'Relationships' and 'Changing Me'.

PE & Games

Our indoor PE sessions are Volleyball. Outdoor Games will be Athletics, Cricket and Rounders. It is an expectation that all children bring a change of clothing and trainers to school on a Monday and take home on a Friday.
