Year 4

With Mr Hodgins and Miss Cleaver

Welcome to year 4


During last half-term, Class 4 learnt about how natural disasters have influenced how people live in different parts of the world. The children had opportunity to learn about the different layers of the Earth, plate tectonics and the science behind different natural disasters as well as how people prepare and stay safe. The children also looked at a range of case studies and conduct experiments to explore the science behind different natural disasters.

I hope you enjoy looking through our learning photos!


Class 4 will have a historical themed term during the spring as they are 'Travelling Back in Time'. The children will have the opportunity to learn about the Romans and how these historical periods have impacted Britain. They will also be creating their own mosaic artwork and designing their own Roman shields. In English, the children will be reading the Roman myth 'Romulus and Remus' to write their own Roman-themed action stories. In whole-class guided reading, the children will read a variety of non-fiction, fiction and poetic texts based on the Romans to immerse them in the vocabulary and new information linked to our topic this term. In science class 4 will be learning about sound and how it travels and changes over distance.

We have a lot to look forward to during the busy spring term!
