Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

We are excited to welcome you to 4DB and 4KH. In Year 4 there are lots of people who are here to help you with your learning – Mrs Bush, Miss Hodgson, Mr Simmonds and Mrs Putti. 


Our curriculum topic in Autumn 1 is the ‘Ancient Egyptians’. This topic will encourage the children to explore where Ancient Egypt fits into history, what Ancient Egyptian civilisation was like and what evidence we have of Ancient Egypt. The children will have the opportunity to gain an insight into Tutankhamen’s tomb, Egyptologists, the Pharaohs and what daily life was like. The children will also have the opportunity to locate Egypt on a map, research the climate and as well as the Nile and its uses. This topic will be taught over Autumn 1 and Autumn 2.

Our Science topic is ‘Sound’. The children will learn how sounds are made using a variety of instruments and how they can be changed in volume, pitch as well as over distance.

In Autumn 2, our Science is ‘Power it up’. Year 4 will be researching the different uses of electricity. They will learn and understand how to change a circuit by changing its components. The children will then apply their knowledge and skills to design and make an alarm.
