Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

We will be sharing lots of the activities, visits and events that we have been involved in on this page. We hope you enjoy sharing our learning with us.

Colchester Castle


On Friday 2nd November, Year 4 went on a fantastic visit to Colchester Castle to learn more about their Roman topic. 


Did you know that Colchester used to be called Camulodunum and it was Britain's first ever city?

We learnt that Colchester Castle used to be a Roman temple and the Queen of the Celtic Iceni tribe burnt Colchester down to the ground in the fight back against the Romans. It was then rebuilt as a castle in the Norman times. Ask your child if they can remember the Queen's name?


Whilst at the Castle, we were able to spend time exploring the Museum, taking part in their interactive displays and we even got to dress up as Roman characters. We were very lucky to be taken underneath the Castle, which is not usually open to the public, to hear more about Colchester in the Roman times- the walk ways were very low and we had to be careful not to bump our heads! 


We also had lots of fun trying to rebuild an Iron Age Roundhouse and a Roman Villa. We had to work well as a team and listen to each other to build them in the time given.


Many thanks to the parents who joined us on this trip and to your support at home enabling us to go.
