Elm, Year 4

Welcome to Elm, Year 4

Year 4  is a considerate, compassionate  learning community, who are working hard to be good 'Maltby Citizens'. 

We demonstrate our values of Achievement, Excellence and Opportunities by:

  • Being independent and motivated learners
  • Being supportive and considerate of one another
  • Joining in with as many new experiences as possible



Our Big Question is: What is home?

The question ' What is home?' focuses on the Roman Empire following a theme of traders and invaders. It makes us think about the safety of home and what happens when this is threatened by invading forces who were powerful warriors,  but also the positive changes and improvements they brought - like toilets!  

Using a range of fiction and non-fiction texts, we will build on our reading fluency and stamina, at the same time building our technical vocabulary and understanding of what was a significant period in history. 



  • The Thieves of Ostia
  • Romans on the Rampage
  • Escape from Pompeii
  • A range of non-fiction texts (such as Horrible Histories Rotten Romans)
  • A range of poetry
