Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

The Year 4 Classes are taught by Mr Brown, Ms. Kowalska and Miss Bell and our brilliant TA’s Ms Sullivan and Ms Cooper.

This year we are going to have many adventures to help us learn, from travelling through Africa to journeying through the human body!

This half term, Year 4 will be learning about Antarctic explorers. In this topic, children learn about the extreme environment of Antarctica, considering the changing environment at the poles and some causes of this.  They will make use of knowledge gained in Science on states of matter and temperature change to link work on textiles in Design & Technology, when they design and make hot water bottle covers.  In Geography, children will use globes, maps and atlases to locate countries and find out about their physical features.  They will also learn about key features of compasses and directions including grid references.  We will be using the book “Shackleton’s Journey” during our English lessons to learn about his epic journey, writing letters and diary entries

We are looking forward to a very exciting term!

PE takes place every Thursday and Friday outside, please send your child wearing their PE kit to school on these days.
