Welcome to Year 4!
The Year 4 team is a vibrant group of enthusiastic teachers who collectively have a wide range of expertise and wealth of experience. The team consists of the following staff:
Miss Savage - Year 4 Team Leader and teacher of 4 Dynamo
Mr Skinner - Curriculum Lead and teacher of 4 Ayling-Ellis
Miss Nalumu - teacher of 4 Turner
Mrs Madigan - HLTA for Year 4
Miss Temour - Key Worker for Year 4.
Over the course of the year, we will be covering a wide range of topics in our PBL (Project Based Learning). We will be focusing on 'Narnia'; using the characters to design and make hand puppets that we can use to retell the story of 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' to our Year 1 children. We will be using our geographical skills to study ‘rivers and coasts’ and look at the impact a river has on its surroundings as well as the impact it has had on societies and settlements across various historical periods. This leads nicely into learning about Roman Britain and how life in Britain changed as a result of the invasion and settlement of the Romans. In Science we will be looking at how we classify living things according to different characteristics. We will also study animals including humans and focus on the teeth structure in humans, states of matter to focus on the relationship between solids, liquids and gases, sound and electricity.
This year, we are hoping to go on the following trips: ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' theatre trip; The Living Rainforest and, The National Gallery.
We look forward to working with you to support the learning of our children.
