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 ‘Planet Earth, but how long for?’ Throughout this project, we’ll be investigating what effects humans have on the environment, how we can reverse some of these effects, and we will be creating our very own window boxes to grow vegetables. Also, we’ll be visiting St. Fagans to study how people used to live sustainably.

For science, we will be classifying living things. There will be plenty of exciting experiments, investigations, and tasks, where we will try and answer: how do we group living things? What is the difference between flowering and non-flowering plants? 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.’
