Welcome To Year 4

During the autumn term, we are finding out about the Ancient Romans and their impact on Britain. Did you know there are Roman remains in the Verulamium Park in St Albans?  In geography, we're exploring Antarctica. We'll discover why it is so cold, what the landscape is like and whether people live there, as well as learning how to plot locations using latitude and longitude.


Our art lessons focus on drawing skills and DT is all about textiles and fastenings. In maths, we are building on our knowledge of place value and arithmetic skills. We are using Time Tables Rock Stars to help improve our accuracy and speed.


We have some lovely books to inspire our writing, such as The Journey by Aaron Becker and The Journal of a Iliona by Richard Platt. We are delving into many books during guided reading and VIPERS lessons, such as The 13-Storey Treehouse by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton and The Boy Who Biked Around the World Part 1 by Alastair Humphreys.


Our two science topics for this term are sound and living and their habitats. Answering such questions as: Why is space silent? How can we classify the millions of different species of living things? Our trip to the BBC Earth Experience in London with Year 3 will, no doubt ,be a highlight of the term.
