Year 4 Autumn Term Curriculum - Beyond Ourselves
This term, our theme is "Beyond Ourselves"! We will be learning about Europe, building on our learning from year 3 about the United Kingdom. We will be looking at the different countries and describing their similarities and differences. In science, we will be learning about states of matter and electricity. We will be going to Magna to investigate electricity further in a fun environment! Over the term, we will be focusing on an artist called Stephen Wiltshire in art and DT. Using his inspiration, we will be creating our own sketches of a famous building within Europe and making our own structures for a purpose. In music, we will be learning all about ABBA and performing some of their most famous songs through singing and musical instruments.

Year 4 Spring Term Curriculum - All Things Great and Small
This term, our theme is “All Things Great and Small”! We will be learning about rivers and mountains, linking to our previous knowledge about the topographical features within the U.K. We will be building on this by exploring why rivers and mountains are key aspects of physical geography and even creating some fieldwork around the features of the River Medan. In science, we will be learning about animals including humans and living things and their habitats. So keep an eye out for those creepy crawlies! Throughout the term, we will be studying pilgrimages within R.E and even taking a trip to the Southwell Minster to immerse ourselves in our work. In Art, we are focusing on refining our textiles skills and will be creating a combined blanket at the end of the term for our classroom.
