Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

The Year 4 Team include Mr Upfold, the Year Leader and Class Teachers, Miss Hulme and Miss Riglar.
We are all really looking forward to working with the Year 4 children over the coming year and providing them with a variety of exciting learning opportunities. We are exploring many topics including: Saxons, Vikings, Tudors, and Europe.

Please see the Curriculum overview for more information and keep checking this page for updates about our children’s learning.

Curriculum Overview – Year 4 (2021-2022)

Minstead Presentation 2022

We began the year writing fairy tales. Combining the theme of ‘Giants’ with one of the Learning Values, ‘creativity’, the children also wrote character descriptions about a giant they had invented. As well as this, the children also reflected on what it means to show ‘respect’, another of the school’s Learning Values, by writing ‘Recipes for a Successful Learning Partner’. We are delighted to have some excellent examples of children’s work proudly on display in our corridor.
In science, the children have been exploring ‘Skeletons’. They have been comparing different types of skeletons, muscles and joints, culminating in the building of a mechanical hand. To kick-start the topic, the children enjoyed drawing their own skeletons with chalk on the playground.
 
This term we will be exploring Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. We will be learning about where the Anglo-Saxons came from and why they invaded. As well as this, we will be investigating how the Anglo-Saxons lived and why so many of our place names have Anglo-Saxon names, including Chineham (‘ham’ meaning small village)!
