Message for school closure
All schools in England will be closed at the end of this week for a vast majority of pupils. This will include our Nursery. Details are still emerging around provision for children of key workers and for vulnerable children and there will be an update later today.
Below this message is the home learning pack for Year 4. If you are in isolation, please send a safe adult to school to collect a pack.
If you need to get in contact with your child’s teacher regarding the home learning, whether that be to ask a question or for clarity, please contact us via our work emails:
4JP - email@example.com
4SG - firstname.lastname@example.org
We have already updated this section as well with online learning websites which are free to access and help to provide some structure or routine whilst at home.
We will also add some further learning packs.
Thank you for your cooperation in this difficult time, from the Year 4 team.
A separate page has been started to store all the links for websites and apps and have been moved off this page. We will continue to upload home learning packs every 2 weeks.
Please click on the link below to access them.
Please remember to log on and practise your times tables using Times Table Rockstars!
All children were sent home with a log in card but if they can't find it please contact your class teacher by email to receive their code again.
Welcome to Year 4!
Topic Work (History focus)
This half term, our topic will be ‘Crime and Punishment’ unit. Children will develop their chronological knowledge beyond 1066 through studying this aspect of social history. They will learn about the Roman justice system and compare crime and punishment through the ages. They will also deepen their historical awareness and compare modern day crime prevention and detection methods with those from the past. We will be complementing our learning with a trip to the Tower of London at the end of the half term.
The Romans (History focus)
As historians we will be learning about the impact the Roman Empire had on life in Britain. Children will learn about the spread of the Roman Empire, the invasion of Britain and the eventual conquest. The children will also look in detail at some aspects of the Romanisation of Britain, such as the building of Roman roads and bathhouses. In addition to this, they will have the opportunity to learn about the British resistance of Boudicca and will act in role to look at the events of Boudicca's rebellion from different perspectives. The children will also investigate Hadrian's Wall, examining how, where and why it was built.
This half term, our topic will be ‘Natural Disasters.’ Children will find out all about the Earth's extremes, from raging tropical storms to violent erupting volcanoes to terrifying towering tsunamis. We will look at the physical geography of the Earth and what causes earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanoes. They will also explore how these events affect people, communities and landscapes.
