Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

Welcome to 4SC and 4AC. In Year 4 there are lots of people who are here to help you with your learning – Mrs Chessis, Miss Corboy, 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. They will also look at Tutankhamen’s tomb, Egyptologists, the Pharaohs and what daily life was like. We will also look at where Egypt is, the climate and 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 on a variety of instruments and how they can be changed in volume, pitch and over distance.

In Autumn 2, our Science is ‘Power it Up’. They will revisit some uses of electricity. They will learn how to change a circuit by changing its components. Understanding how to change a circuit by changing its components makes up the third part of this topic, leading in a final application of knowledge and skills when the children design and make an alarm using their knowledge of circuits.
