Following Government guidelines, we will be keeping windows open at all times in classrooms in order to increase ventilation. Please remember to stick closely to your class drop off and pick up times to help us reduce congestion on the school site.

Summer Term Topic



Our topic for the summer term is "One World', inspired by the story by Michael Foreman. This tells the story of a boy and girl who realise that the more they take from the world, the more harm is done. In this topic we will be learning about sustainability and the environment. We will look at the history of plastic usage and how it has affected the world's oceans and the inhabitants that live there. We will also be looking at artwork by Antony Goldsworthy and how he uses natural resources to inspire his creations. Our science also links in to this and we will be looking at the life cycles of plants.





Autumn Topic


Our topic this term will explore the Ancient Greeks and our Local Area. The children will be learning how the past has influenced the modern era as well as getting to grips with map reading and finding out more about the town they live in.


Varjak Paw

Year 4 will be using 'Varjak Paw' in our Guided Reading sessions.


Year 4 Homework


Home work will set weekly via class Dojo and will alternate between English and Maths. Topic homework will also be set.
