Darley Dene Primary School Achieving and Caring

Doves - Year 4

Welcome to the SUMMER term!  We have a busy, fun-filled term planned, with lots of exciting learning opportunities for all. 

Our topic this half term is The Roman Empire and it's impact on Britain.  This will include finding out about  Julius Caesar’s attempted invasion in 55-54 BC.  We will also look at how and why the Roman army was so successful.   We will explore British resistance, for example, Boudica (or Boudicca!).  Finally, we will also find out about the Romanisation’ of Britain: sites such as Caerwent and the impact of technology, culture and beliefs, including early Christianity. 


Our residential trip is from 16th- 18th May in beautiful High Ashurst, more details will follow.
