Summer Term

Welcome Back into the Summer Term in Year 4! We had a fantastic time during the Spring Term looking at the Ancient Egyptians, especially our visit to Mansfield Museum where the children took part in lots of interactive activities including an artefact hunt! Please scroll down the page to see photos of the day!


Our topic for the Summer Term has a geographical focus titled ‘All Around the World’. We will be focusing on physical geographic features including mountains, hills, lakes, continents and countries. There will be a particular focus on the country of ‘France’ and we will be comparing how it is different to the UK. Children will also be doing some map reading using the atlases to enhance their map skills.




Here are a few reminders to help you prepare for the Summer Term:


  • Please ensure you have your PE kit in school every week. PE will take place on a Wednesday and a Friday so take it home on a Friday and return it on a Monday.


  • Remember to bring your water bottle to school every day. You may bring in a healthy snack for break time of you wish.


  • Bring your reading diary into school every day. Diaries will be collected in every Thursday to total up Attitude & Behaviours and Merits each week. Also, the number of times you read at home will be added up every week. Remember, if you read 5 times at home every week for 10 weeks you will receive a book in assembly. It is really important that you read at home.


  • Spellings and Maths homework will be handed out every Friday and must be returned the following Wednesday.


  • If you have any further questions please email me on:

World Book Day 03.03.22

Rockstar Day 23.02.22

Year 4 had a fantastic day visiting Mansfield Museum this week. The children had the opportunity to take part in many Egyptian themed activities including a treasure hunt for artefacts, cracking some hieroglyphic codes and a team auction! They also enjoyed looking around the museum at lunch time. The groups presented all their work from the day on display boards.

We have a very exciting half term coming up – our topic is The Ancient Egyptians!  We will be learning all about the amazing art and culture as well as the features of past attitudes and societies. Children will enjoy learning about pyramids, mummification, the importance of the River Nile and lots more! They will gather information based on  primary and secondary sources.

We have a very exciting visit coming up on 2nd February where the children will experience a day of Egyptian fun at The Mansfield Museum! Watch this space for photographs of the day.

  • Bring a named water bottle to school each day.
  • You can bring a healthy snack to school each day, to have mid-morning, if you wish.
