Please find information below about the current learning in Year 4. 

It's harvest time and we are taking a close-up look at all things food. From finding out about where our food comes from, to what happens when we eat it, we will learn all about food from farm to fork and beyond! We will also consider a balanced diet and how to design a healthy menu.

Writing - Inspired by the book, 'The Whale', children will write a seting narrative entry and a newspaper report.

Reading - Make predictions, comparisons and inferences when reading books related to animals. 

Science - Animals and the digestive system.

RE:Christianity: How do beliefs shape people’s lives? How do they differ?
