Class Project:

I would like you to create a project on the Roman Empire that you can share with the class when we return. It could be about anything that interests you and presented in anyway you like. Use books and the internet to find out all about life during the Roman era. You could focus on: Roman buildings, Roman entertainment, Roman inventions, what life was like for children during ancient Rome or something else that captures your interest. Try not to focus on the Roman soldiers or army, because we’ve covered this in great detail during lesson time. There are many ways you can present your project. It could be through a poster, PowerPoint presentation, leaflet or model.


  • Continue reading widely at home.
  • Discuss what you have read.


Do some writing inspired by ancient Rome. It could be a story or factual leaflet all about what life was like. You could imagine you went back in time, what would be different or similar? How would you cope? 

Look at some of the year 3/4 spelling words to learn and practise at home. If you do not have a copy of these, you can find them online by searching for, ‘Year 3/4 Common Exception Words List.’


Continue to learn and practise all the times tables (including division facts).

Continue to practise calculations with the four operations (+ - x ÷).

4-digit number + 4-digit number (e.g. 2876 + 3035)

4-digit number – 4-digit number (e.g. 7360 – 2761)

3-digit number x 1-digit number using the column method or splitting into its place value (e.g. 340 x 8)

3-digit number ÷ 1-digit number using the bus stop method (e.g. 648 ÷ 4).
