In Year 4 we are


In the mornings we learn Reading, English and Maths. In the afternoons we learn Spellings and SPaG, Science, French, PSHE, PE and RE. All other subjects are taught in thematic cross-curricular units under the Dimensions curriculum. You can find out more about all subjects across the school on the curriculum page


Our current Dimensions theme is Cry Freedom.

‘Cry Freedom’ is a based around the history of slavery. We start by learning what slavery is, looking at some of the reasons behind it and examples of it, before moving on to fi­nd out about slavery in Europe, Asia, Africa and America throughout history. Then, we learn about two key people who were instrumental in making slavery illegal, before investigating modern day slavery and what we can do to stand against it, like the courageous abolitionists of the past.

In Year 4 the Adventurers themes are: 


'Lightning Speed' - The World Wide Web (Communication)

'Autumn in Canada' - Geography

‘Law and Order’ - Rules and Rights (Conflict)

‘Cry Freedom!’ - All About Slavery (Culture)

‘Out and About’ - Geography

‘Picture Our Planet’ - Photo Stories (Conservation)

‘Viking Warrior’ - The Story of Ragnar Lothbrok
