This year, Mrs Clow, Mrs Whittaker, Miss Horne, Mrs Tedejewski, Mrs Fowler and Miss Lockwood make up the team in Year 4.
In Year 4 we believe in a creative curriculum to help immerse the children into topics taught. We also ensure a rich variety of trips and experiences to help embed, enhance and engage.
To get the year off to a flying start, we are journeying back in time to Ancient Roman Britain where we will find out what the Romans really did for us, and discover why a Celtic queen called Boudicca decided to fight back! As part of our geography, we will look at cities of the UK and compare how they look now to how they looked in the past. Our science starts with changing state and ends with electricity. In art, we will explore different media to create our own mosaics then look at sculptures of local artist Barbara Hepworth.
In Spring term we will explore the Ancient Egyptians including pharaohs, pyramids and their Gods and Goddesses. We also look at sound and explore the counties of the UK. Spring sees our first DT topic where we built pavilions.
Summer is a busy term! We will be seeking out animals and their habitats. During this topic we will take a trip to the Yorkshire wildlife park to experience first-hand how animals live in and adapt to where they live.
Also this year, the children will spend time with Mr Townsend learning to play the drums. At the end of the year they will put on an amazing concert and you will be able to go and enjoy listening to the results of their hard work.
With such a busy and fun-filled year we are sure the children will thoroughly love their time with us in year 4!
