Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!


Welcome to Year 4!

Our year 4 team includes Mrs Tomlinson (class teacher ) and Mrs Waite (teaching assistant).Mrs Cave (Teaching Assistant) will also be with us on Friday afternoons. Mme Cachou-Kirkham will be teaching the children French on Wednesday afternoons followed by Mrs Lawton, who will be teaching computing.. During year 4 the children work around cross-curricular topics, which change every half term. These themes link to English, Maths and Science where possible.
Violent Volcanoes (Autumn 1)
During this term the children will investigate volcanic eruptions and particularly study the impact of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius on Pompeii. 

Romans - The Empire Strikes! (Autumn 2)

The children will find out about the invasion and settlement of the Romans in Britain and the effect that this has had on current ways of life. They will also learn about what it was like to be a Roman soldier and the organisation of the Roman army. 
Amazing Antarctica (Spring 1)
In this topic children will learn to investigate different places and make comparisons between Antarctica and where we live.  They will also learn how to use atlases, globes, maps to describe what places are like, where they are and environmental issues. 
Enterprising Explorers (Spring 2)
This unit links closely to writing a journal in literacy. Children plan and write a diary entry as if they were a scientific researcher based in Antarctica and also in the context of being an Antarctic Explorer. They will recall, select and organise historical information about Antarctic explorers – Shackleton, Scott and Amundsen and their expeditions to the South Pole. 
Digging up the past (Summer 2)

The children will  learn about Anglo Saxon invasions and settlements in Britain. They will discover the tools and materials that the Anglo Saxons used when building villages. The children will investigate the historical evidence that remains from Anglo Saxon settlements, including place names and artwork.
