Year 4


Summer 1 


Open wide - let's take a look inside! We're on a voyage of discovery to investigate the busy world inside your body! Do you have a toothy grin or a winning smile? In this topic, the children will be learning about the different types of human and animal teeth and the function of the digestive system. We will start off the topic by gaining information about our teeth and how to keep them healthy. “Burps, Bottoms and Bile” will follow our foods’ journey from when it enters, what happens to it inside, when it passes through each component, to when it comes out of the marvellous belching, squelching, mixture-making machine we call our body!

Autumn 2 


Misty Mountain Sierra


This half term we are learning all about mountains.


Mighty Mountains peak above the morning mists, imposing and eternal, rocky outcrops at their feet.


Discover how these giants are formed, as a fold or a block, a dome or a plateau.


Follow the water cycle's course from peak to valley and meet the exceptional tribes of the hostile Himalayas.


We are very lucky to have climber parents share their experiences with us.
