Year 4

Spring Term in Year 4!


In the Spring, our topic will be

The Anglo Saxons & Vikings!


This will be a history topic where we will learn all about how the Vikings lived, their culture and reputation as fearsome warriors! We will also discover ancient Viking mythology and get to know the Viking Gods! Exciting art and technology will be based on this topic too.


Our science topic will be electricity and we will investigate how to make a circuit, what makes a good conductor and how to be safe around electricity!


In literacy we will base our learning around a Cressida Cowell book called How to Train Your Dragon. We will create our own dragon characters and short stories as well as developing our comprehension skills while reading the book.
