We have a fascinating curriculum to learn about. In Year 4 we will learn how the Romans lived and what they contributed to our way of life. As part of this, we will look at Binchester Roman Fort and what the Archaeologists have unearthed about the Roman soldiers who lived there.

As children are spending more time on devices and online, please see below some links and resources about staying safe online.  Further information and guidance is also available on our Online Safety page.

Recommended Reads

As well as being enjoyable, reading really helps children’s writing ability and general learning.

We like to encourage children to read as much as possible, both at home and in school.

To help with the difficult task of choosing a new book, we have put together a list of books for each year group.
