Year 4

Welcome to Year 4


The Curriculum and School Trips


We have lots of exciting topics planned for this year.

The main topic of the autumn term is Winchester. We will be learning about aspects of Winchester history and geography and will also focus on the River Itchen during our Water Cycle work.

In the spring term our lead topic will be the Romans. We will also link the Ancient World with the modern, when we make a comparison with life in Rome today in Bella Italia.

During the summer term we will be finding out about the achievements of the early civilisations and will be focusing on Ancient Sumer.

Along with our leading topics we also have some fantastic science units and will be learning about electricity and states of matter in the autumn, teeth and digestion in the spring and in the summer term, plants and habitats.


Special Events


Autumn term

Year 4 children are responsible for leading the whole school in the Harvest Celebration and during the autumn term we will be preparing for this important privilege.


Spring term

To launch our Roman Topic the children will have the chance to become a Roman for a whole day. Everyone will have the opportunity to take part in Roman activities and dress up as a Roman character, even the teachers! The topic will also be further enhanced by a ‘play in a day’ visit from the Treehouse theatre company where we will dress up again.


Summer term

As part of the science work on plants, we will be visiting Hillier Arboretum in Ampfield.

During the year there will be lots of other special events such as Science Week, Arts Week, technology challenges and more which will all help to make this a very exciting year.
