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 Rampaging Romans. We will be learning about who the Romans were, what they did for us and how they lived. We will be inviting an actual Roman to come in and conduct our Roman Day. This topic will end in explosive fashion when the children erupt their own Volcanoes that they might have built for a Home learning project.

In the spring term our topic will be Where the Land meets the Sea. This will be our geography topic where we will look at coasts, mountains, rivers and how our land is formed.

During the summer term we will be finding out about the achievements of the early civilizations and will be focusing on the Anglo-Saxons.

Along with our leading topics we also have some fantastic science units and will be learning about electricity and states of matter plants and habitats.


Special Events


Autumn Term – Rampaging Romans

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. In addition to this, 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! As a home learning project we will be encouraging the children to make their own Volcano that will coincide with exploring the natural disaster of Pompeii.


Spring Term – Where the Land meets the Sea

This will be our Geographical topic and we will be exploring Coasts, Rivers and Mountains.

During this term the children will be taking the opportunity to partake in Swimming lessons where they will develop their skills and they will possibly be able to gain lifesaving skills.


Summer Term – Angry Anglos

As part of History topic of Anglo-Saxons, the children will be given the opportunity to explore Saxon Meon Valley at the Sustainability Centre. 


We will be exploring several other immersive learning opportunities for the children to ensure that we can develop our skills in all areas of the curriculum.
