During the second half of the autumn term year four will be investigating the geography topic of mountains of the world.

We enjoyed visiting Coventry Cathedral on Friday 18th October. We learned about how the German attack on our closest city affected its population and how Coventry is is a focus of reconciliation around the world.

Welcome to Year 4 Autumn Term 2019

 

A big welcome from the Year 4 team. This year we have lots of exciting topics to look forward to, starting with the Home Front where we will look at life in Britain during World War 2. Swimming will start on Wednesday in the third week of term. Please make sure you bring in your swimming kit (swimming costume, towel, goggles and swimming cap if your hair is below shoulder length) all labelled with your name! Our trip to Coventry Cathedral, is a fantastic opportunity to see how local life was affected by World War Two and is sure to inspire our learning this term.
