Here is the Year 4 team! From left to right: Mr. Calloway, Mr. Burtonshaw, Mr. Debley, Mrs. Hibbitt, Mrs. Perry and Miss Hardisty – Mr. Evans will be teaching P.E this year.

Welcome to Year 4! This term our project is called ‘Who’s that coming?’ Throughout this project, we’ll be investigating how the ancient Romans lived, their influence on Britain, and we will also be creating our very own Scutums (Roman Shields). Also, we’ll be visiting an ancient Roman settlement in Caerleon, Wales.

Our third unit of science is titled ‘states of matter’. There will be plenty of exciting experiments, investigations, and tasks, where we will try and answer: what are liquids, gases and solids? How can substances change from one state to another? These activities link in with Article 29 of our Rights Respecting School (RRS) rights, which states that ‘your education should help you use and develop your talents and abilities.’
