History & Geography

In Year 4 we will be learning about the Romans. The pupils will be able to learn about how the Roman Empire fits into European history (particularly their occupation of Britain); what the empire achieved; the technological and scientific advances they brought to the word; what everyday life in Roman towns was like; and the cultural impact of their activities that’s still evident today. The children will also have the opportunity to compare life today with Roman times, and learn a little about the pre-Roman Celtic culture that existed in Britain before their arrival.

In a geography unit which is also linked to history, we're going to be looking at the changing local environment. The class will learn how the city of Manchester has developed over the last hundred years or so, and the changes which continue to happen around us.
