Year 4

Class Page for Year 4 Summer 2018

On this page you can read news about Year 4 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:

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 our first Science topic this term, we shall be learning about electrical circuits. We shall be investigating how to make simple circuits that work, then using a Crumble controller, together with computer software, to design and program our own battery-powered night lights.

Experiments in school will be carried out safely using battery-powered electric circuits. Most of the appliances at home use mains electricity (carried via a plug in the wall) that is not safe to experiment with. See if you can spot all the hazards of mains electricity in this animation:

The links below will take you to other animations and games all about electric circuits.



Our Geography topic: Bishop's Tachbrook and Beyond...! is all about our local area. Below are links to websites that you may find useful.
