We have some incredibly exciting projects planned for 2017/18 in Year 4. (Please see the secure parents area on the school’s website for a detailed long term plan). Our overarching project themes tie all of our subjects together in a cross curricular manner, and make learning the Year 4 national curriculum as enjoyable as possible!

Term 1 – Energy

In Term 1 the theme of our learning was ‘Energy’. During this time we explored lots of different aspects of energy in Science, Geography, Art,  Literacy and Maths! Our learning was celebrated at a Science Fair where the children passed on all their amazing new knowledge to younger children in the school.

During this term we were also studying the work of Andy Golsworthy, an artists famed for his use of natural materials. We even used his work as inspiration for our own land art sculptures!
