Lilli from Honey Class has drawn this image which we think is a lovely depiction of 'togetherness' during these difficult times. Well done Lilli!

At school last week, Elias, Emma, Esa, Rahmatulai and Harry made canopic jars as part of the learning we have been doing on the Ancient Egyptians. We think they look fabulous!

Previous learning activities and resources will now be availble in the 'Previous Home Learning' at the bottom of this page. 

​


Please contact the school if your child does not have the exercise book to complete the daily learning tasks. 

At the bottom of this page, you will also find a 'Home Learning' pack containing a large number of reading, writing and maths activities, as well as a 'Practical Learning' pack with additional ideas of ways in which the children can learn. 

Key Information

In Year Four, pupils are encouraged to develop their creativity in imaginative writing, problem solving and investigations.

Our topics are Invaders and Settlers, Journeys and Ancient Civilisations. These topics give us great scope for learning about historical figures such as Tutenkhamun, Julius Caesar and Boudicca. There is also time to learn about topical issues – including the refugee crisis – and for critical thinking, where pupils consider what they would do in a challenging situation (for example, if they were Julius Caesar!) and to develop their power of persuasion in role as travel agents!

We support our curriculum with trips – we’ve recently been Mudlarking on the River Thames and will be visiting the British Museum later this year. Year Four also benefit from the opportunity of a school journey to the Isle of Wight, where pupils spend three nights at Kingswood Residential Centre, engaging in team work challenges; high-ropes activities and learning to live and work together.
