Welcome to Year 4

Spring Term in Year 4

Our Theme this term is Curiosity!

Our learning will be underpinned by our Spring bookshelf; filled with inspiring and engaging texts to spark our imaginations and teach us the many different ways people and characters can show curiosity. These books include fiction texts, picture books, narratives and novels. All of these texts will help us explore the idea of ‘curiosity’ in different forms. Each of these texts will allow the children to develop their knowledge and application of different genres. These will include; to entertain, instructions, character descriptions, narratives and non-chronological reports.


In Geography, we will be learning about the geographical similarities and  

Differences between Italy and the UK. We will explore how physical features have formed, why they are significant and how they change (volcanoes). 

In Science, we will continue with our work on ‘Teeth and the Digestive System’ before moving onto ‘Animals Including Humans’.

In History, we will be learning about the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain. To compliment this topic, we will have an exciting day with a visitor who will immerse us in this topic.

As always, our academic and enrichment curriculum will be led by our four school drivers.

The Year 4 team:

Mrs Bell  – 4NB Class Teacher

Mr Bowett, Mrs Rana, Miss Singh, Miss Gardner – Learning Support Assistants
