The Holt

Welcome to the webpage of the YEAR FOUR OTTERS

As part of our History topic this term, the class have been given complete freedom on their work. They have to produce a creative piece of work, a written piece of work and a timeline for the Roman invasion of Britain. The children have come up with the areas they would like to find out about in groups and have planned how they are going to present their findings.

In English, Joe took on the role of Brutus our ‘Blood Thirsty’ gladiator. Joe faced some tough questions from the class as they were trying to understand his emotions the day he has to fight.

Using chocolate to solve fraction problems. Where would you sit to get the most amount of chocolate?
