Year 4

The Year 4 team is Mr Tolman, Miss Chislett, and Miss Egginton.

Spring Term 2019

In Year 4 we will soon begin our ‘Active Planet' topic. We will be learning about natural disasters that occur around the world. We will build our understanding about volcano eruptions, how earthquakes and tsunamis happen, and what the impact of these is like on communities. We can’t wait to make exploding volcano models too!

Science in the Spring term is very exciting. We will be learning about electricity, including keeping safe, and learning about circuits and conductors. During the second half of the term we will be engaging in National Science, Engineering and Technology week, where we will learn about sound.

In Design and Technology, we will be designing our own T-shirts using stencils. During the second half of the term, we are also looking forward to a new Art topic called ‘Pop Art’. We will be learning about famous artists from the ‘Pop Art’ movement and exploring how to create our very own pictures in the style of Roy Lichtenstein.

Curriculum overview

We started using the International Primary Curriculum in September 2016. You can find more details of it on the Curriculum and Subject pages on the menu to the left. At the beginning of every unit of study we will be sending out a letter to parents that explains the sort of things that are being covered in the unit. Copies of these letters are available from the links below, as well as an overview for this year group.
