Year 4

Mulberry and Beech classes



This year our topics are:

Why does our world keep changing? (Volcanoes & Earthquakes)

How did the Roman Empire change Britain? (Romans & Celts)

Teeth & Digestion

Anglo-Saxons and Scots


This half term we are learning all about what Britain was like after the Romans left. The children will be investigating where the Anglo-Saxons came from and why they came to Britain. They will have opportunities to explore Anglo-Saxon artefacts. The children will also be taking part in a live online workshop with Heritage Education where they will meet an Anglo-Saxon called Gwen. This topic is also linked with our art, inspired by Jeanne Poiret Boivin, the children will be creating an Anglo-Saxon brooch out of clay.

Our English text this half term is 'Tales of King Arthur.' Children will be writing a narrative about the night baby Arthur was rescued by Merlin. They will also be writing a playscript about Morgan Le Fay, the scheming sorceress.

Our mathematics focus this half-term will be fractions and decimals.

In science, we are looking at animals and how they can be classified into different groups.

In D&T, the children have already experienced the joy of making their own lunch.
