Year 4 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Year 4!
Mr Jones, Mrs Langley & Miss Smith
Our overarching theme this year is ‘Footprints’
Our Spring Term Big Question is…
Does what we do locally have a global effect?
Our main theme for this term is tropical rainforests and sustainability. Our key texts this term are Running Wild by Michael Morpurgo, The Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cherry and The Tin Forest by Helen Ward.
The Curriculum Page on the website helps you find out much more about each of the subjects too.
Our Knowledge mats can be downloaded from the files at the bottom of the page so you can see exactly what the "sticky knowledge" is we want the children to learn.
