Spring Term

Welcome to Year 4
Meet our Teachers
Our Spring Learning

This term, Year 4 will be immersing ourselves into Ancient Egypt. We are looking forward to learning all about the history behind the Ancient Egyptian civilisation including; how they used the River Nile, hieroglyphics, exploring artefacts and using atlases to locate where they lived.  

In our Science lessons, we will explore sound and electricity. We will conduct scientific experiments to test how sound and electricity works and apply this learning to our everyday lives.  

We will be very busy in Maths this term. We will study a range of topics including; Multiplication and Division, Length and perimeter, Fractions and Decimals 


Art/DT - Pharoh Headdress and Sand Art. We will also take inspiration from the artist Alaa Awad when making Pharoah Self-portraits 

We will learn how to code using Scratch in ICT
