Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

Welcome to 4CP and 4AC. In Year 4 there are lots of people who help you with your learning- Miss Plummer, Miss Corboy and Miss Baynes who works across both classes. There are other people who will be working with you too – Mr Simmonds, Ms Sells, Mr Amaya and Mrs Simmonds.

Curriculum

Our curriculum topic in Summer 1 is the ‘London and New York’. We will be learning about the similarities and differences between the two cities, focusing on human and physical geography e.g. climate, population, tourism.

Our curriculum topic in Summer 2 is ‘Anglo-Saxons’. We will be learning about: Roman withdrawal from Britain, Scots invasion from Ireland to north Britain (now Scotland) and Anglo Saxon invasion (settlements, place names, village life, art and culture).

In Summer 1, our Science is ‘Living Things’. We will learn to recognise that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways. We will explore and use keys to identify and name a variety of living things. Finally, we will look at how changes to habitats can pose dangers to living things.

In Summer 2, our Science is ‘Bubbles’. This topic also looks at places we see bubbles other than when blowing them through soap mixtures, such as in food to produce lighter (less dense) products. This topic is a chance to explore some of the science that interests us and develops ‘working scientifically’ skills.

Please find our curriculum newsletter attached.
