4I - Ingleton

Summer 2

Our final half term together in Y4, how the year has flown by! This half term we will be seeking all bright sparks while we learn all about electricity in science. The weather is warming up for our seaside topic and our trip to Scarborough. In music we will be creating our very own seaside wraps. We also have a tennis festival to look forward to this half term (fingers crossed for sunshine). Our writing focus is going to be a newspaper report about plastic in the ocean and the damage it is causing to our planet.

Finally, the weather is looking up and just in time for our pond life topic! We are going on our pond dipping trip and this will help support our science focus on living things and their habitats. In English we will be producing chronological reports based on animals living in and around ponds. Our Art focus will be based on pond life and creating 3D sculptures using wire and music will be based around relaxation music; a great link to our Y4 yoga focus! 

We made fantastic wire minibeasts from wire

On Friday 20th April we went on our pond dipping and mini beast hunting trip to the Denso Marston Nature Reserve on the bank of the river Aire at Baildon.

In the morning we did some pond dipping.

Spring term 2


This term our focus is based around the water cycle. This will link with our science topic and writing an explanation text in English. The children will design and build their own bridges in DT and of course we will have the chicks to look after! Maths will have a focus around fractions and decimals. 

Building bridges

SPRING TERM 1 - Mighty Mayans.

We explored the Mayan Empire and compared it with British history. As the Maya discovered cacao beans, we carried out chocolate related activities and practised our culinary skills by creating a Mayan Feast. Our science focus was changing state. Our English was linked to Charlie and The Chocolate Factory. We had so much fun.

Autumn Term 2017


Our first topic during the Autumn term is: Who were the Romans? We will cover the Roman invasion of England and learn about the rebellion of Queen Boudicca. We will also consider what the Romans did for us and their importance in shaping England as we know it today.

Our art focus will be looking at and creating Roman mosaics, and we will be looking at teeth and digestion in our science work. Our exciting music this half term will also be linked to the Romans!

We played Quidditch to help earn extra house points. We competed and had fun trying to catch the Golden Snitch.
