yEAR 4

Welcome to Year 4!

The children have settled back into school brilliantly and are working so hard.

Well, what an exciting year we have in store for your children! We will be travelling in time from the Romans to the Saxons and finally Back to the Future. We are thoroughly looking forward to (hopefully!) having a more normal year and may have the opportunity to enjoy a few trips. 

The Childrens' Secure Page for Year 4 will be updated every week with spellings to be learnt and TT Rock Stars tournament results. You can also find additional homework and resources to support home learning here too.

Thank you, and we look forward to the year ahead.

Curriculum in Year 4:

Autumn Term

This term, we are travelling back to Ancient Roman times to discover what life was like. Our learning will take us on an incredible journey as we study the infamous eruption of Mount Vesuvius; how the Roman Army was so successful; Julius Caesar's terrifying reign and explore how the Romans have influenced our lives today. In Science, we will be exploring states of matter through practical investigations and research. We will study volcanoes of the world in Geography and learn about the process of an eruption. We will create clay busts of key Roman figures such as the Boudicca and Emperor Hadrian in Art. In DT, we will develop sewing skills and make a Roman bulla.

At the beginning of the year, the children enjoyed a Bikeability session. We looked at how to care for our bikes and improved our riding skills with lots of exciting challenges and obstacles.
