This term we will be looking at:

Geography - Europe: We will be learning the names, locations and features of European countries and capitals. You can use www.ozziddi.com to do your own research.

History - Anglo Saxons, Picts and Scots: We will be using the mysterious burial ship at Sutton Hoo as a basis, exploring where the Anglo Saxons came from, how they came to settle in Britain.

Science - States of Matter: We will be learning about the differences between solids, liquids and gases and how these states can change. We will also be learning about the processes of condensation and evaporation.

Art: Children will have the opportunity to explore the work of European artists Anselm Kiefer, Michelangelo, Salvador Dali and Rembrandt, architect Le Corbusier and designer Coco Chanel.

Design & Technology: We will be finding out the purpose of a greenhouse and how it works, exploring how structures like these can be made stable and what materials would be the most appropriate to use.

Music: Using the Anglo Saxon tale ‘Beowulf’ to learn songs and different musical styles.

Times Tables

We are always trying to practise our times tables in year 4. One popular game to help the children learn is called 'Hit the Button'. Click the link below to have a go.
