Welcome to Year 4!

On this page you can read news about our class and find out what we are learning this term. You will also find links to other websites that will help you with your topic homework.

If parents or carers need to contact either of the Year 4 class teachers, please use our school emails in the first instance:

power.h1@welearn365.com

white.p@welearn365.com

We will get back to you as soon as possible (but if the matter needs urgent attention it should be addressed to the school office instead).

In this half term's Science we shall be learning about what happens to our food, in a topic covering food and nutrition, teeth, the human digestive system and food chains.

The links below will take you to useful websites...

about food and nutrition:

    

about the human digestive system:

 

about animal diets and teeth:

    

 

and about food chains:

  

 

   

Our new Geography project is about the Weather around the World. 

We start off by practising using world maps to locate continents, oceans and countries. Then we shall begin investigating the weather, both in Bishop's Tachbrook and in other places around the world. We shall learn how climate graphs can be used to show seasonal weather patterns, and begin to find out what it's like to live in a Mediterranean, Tropical, Desert or Polar climate.

We shall be using our ICT and Computing skills to analyse and present data, and to collaborate on our own class website. 

Below are links to useful websites that you can use at home.

This link will take you to an up-to-date world map.

 There are games on this site that will help you with your world geography.

 You can colour in (almost!) all the countries of the world on this outline map.

 Can you colour in all these European countries with their national flags? (Beware - this is tricky!)

Click on these links for information about each of the 7 continents:

Africa Antarctica Asia

 Europe North America Oceania South America

Weather & Climate Links:

 The Met Office website is useful for looking up weather forecasts around the world.

 On this site, you can look up what the weather was actually like (rather than the forecast) over the past week.
