Year 4 - summer term 2021 

Geography/History: London - Why is our capital city so iconic? 

This term we will look closely at the city and discover the importance of the River Thames, the Royal palaces positioned along it, and the famous people that have inhabited this world famous city

across the centuries. 

Our trip to Flatford had to be postponed to the summer term.

We have been learning about John Constable throughout the spring term.

We will now apply what we know and build on our skills, during our two-day visit to Flatford Mill in June.

Year 4 2020_2021

Science: Investigating evaporation - Having planned our experiment we then made predictions and checked back periodically to see if the two different types of materials had dried.

History: Experimenting with Anglo-Saxon runes and writing our names.

Art: Having practised the skills of drawing a figure of a human body, we applied these to drawing a picture of Pandora and the box.

Children In Need - Anti-Bullying Week - Raising the awareness in year 4

RE: Reflecting on the Ten Commandments: We looked at five of the commandments and asked the children to stand next to the one they considered to be the most important. This encouraged lots of discussion between groups. Some learners decided to stand in the centre of the classroom as they believe that all of the commandments are of equal importance.

Books! Promoting our non-fiction books in year 4.
