Outdoor Curriculum

In outdoor learning this week we made Roman Numerals out of sticks.

Gymnastics - Climbing and Swinging!

Roman Topic Work

As part of our work on the Roman invasion of Britain, the children were set the challenge of building a wall to keep the Picts out, just like Hadrians Wall. We saw some great teamwork and brilliant future builders

We worked as a team to make our owen top trumps game about Roman Gods. We had to work together to choose each score.

Squash Taster

We walked to Ferndown Leisure Centre to take part in a squash lesson. We all learnt some new skills and really enjoyed the morning.

Roman Day

We had a great time on Roman day. We made clay pots, paper mosaic tiles and baked honey, ricotta cakes.


Welcome to Year 4!

Welcome back, we hope you all had a fantastic summer holiday.

We are looking forward to the year ahead working with your children as they start in their final year at Parley. In order to help them with their transition to Middle School, this year we will be encouraging the children to show self-organisation with their belongings and home learning and would appreciate your support with this. Now the children are in Year 4 they have certain responsibilities and privileges such as supporting the children and staff with a range of tasks. These will be rotated every half-term.

Our topics this year will be:

Autumn – The Romans and Healthy Eating

Spring – The Rainforest and Water

Summer – Inventors & Inventions and The Egyptians

In order to enhance and reinforce the children’s learning we have planned a range of educational visits and experiences including:

Roman Day

Avon Tyrrell Residential

Pizza Express

Bird Watching in Poole Harbour

Sports Events

Transition Events

 We value your partnership with us very much. If you have any questions or queries please feel to speak to us at the end of the day.
