Growing Excellence, Inspiring Success

"You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have." Maya Angelou (African American Poet and civil rights activist)

Welcome to Year 4


Our topic for Term 1 ‘The Terrifying Tudors’, is history-based with links to literacy, history, art and P.E. The children will be exploring the key events and individuals from the Tudor era through enquiry based learning. The children will have a ‘Tudor Day’ on Monday 26 September where they will be invited to dress up in Tudor-style clothing if they wish to do so.

In science, children will be learning about ‘States of Matter’ in particular identifying and classifying a variety of different materials and how each material is affected by its environment.

Our Big ideas are Monarchy, fairness, equality.

Inspirational People: Thomas Wyatt, Queen Elizabth I, Matthew Bourne, Miranda Kaufmann.

Dr. Miranda Kaufmann is a Historian, Author and Raconteuse; she is the author of the critically acclaimed, Wolfson History Prize and Nayef Al-Rodhan Prize shortlisted, book ‘Black Tudors: The Untold Story’.
