Year 4 2019 / 20

In Year 4, the children will have a variety of fantastic learning opportunities through an engaging and creative curriculum. The year starts by learning about the Romans and covers how they lived and fought in our topic ‘I am warrior!’ as well as the impact Romans had on Great Britain. As part of this unit we will also have an exciting trip to the Roman ruins of Vindolanda near Hadrian’s Wall.

After the Autumn half-term we move onto our next unit which is ‘Potions’ where the class will explore exciting areas of science, poetry and art whilst reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone as a class.

Once we return from our Christmas Holidays we will begin our ‘Road trip USA!’ with our journey stopping off at a long list of exciting locations. Starting with locational and physical geography, we shall explore the world and North America and it’s awe inspiring mountains, volcanoes and canyons. We then looking back through American history which will inspire our next class assembly and focus on the construction of the first transcontinental railroad across the USA. Our science work on electricity also provides us with an excellent opportunity to link back to the work the class did in Year 3 on Thomas Edison and how his interventions used electricity in new innovative ways. We will finish our unit off with an American Sports day, celebrating the unique and exciting sports played in the USA.

Following that, we will look at ‘Playlists’ with a focus on music and explore how sound travels and is heard in our science lessons. This will be a great opportunity for the children to share their own person love of music and open up new styles and genres to the class.

After the Spring Holiday we shall climb aboard our long-ships and discover the world of the Vikings and Saxons in our topic ‘Raiders and Traders’ travelling through time to the Dark Ages and then on to York to visit the Jorvik Viking centre.

Finally, we shall take a plunge into the ‘Blue Abyss’ and discover the wonders that live in our oceans. This will be the perfect opportunity to study our school’s new marine aquarium and then take this new expertise on a visit to The Deep where the children will come face to face with some of the most amazing creatures on our planet!
