Year 4

Here we are! The final term of Year 4, can you believe it!?

Welcome back to the start of a fun-filled term, I hope everybody had an enjoyable and restful Easter break. This term is set to be super busy, but we are ready for more fun and learning! This newsletter will give you more information about what is going on in the classroom.

Summer term is going to see Year 4 celebrating travelling back in time and joining some dots as we carry on with where we left last term, learning about the Romans. Our topic this term is ‘Settlers through which we will be learning about the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings. This will be taught through a Creative Curriculum. We began with our Launch Day on Thursday 19th April, when we joined a range of armies and re-enacted the various invasions of England.
