Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

Mrs Goodhew

Class 4 have some very exciting topics to cover this year – Year 4 Long Term Curriculum Plan 2018

Spring Term topic: The Vikings

What we want to learn:

  • Who were the Vikings?
  • How did the Vikings travel?
  • Where did they live?
  • Where did they invade?

During the term we will be answering these these questions.

How can you help?

Ask your child what they have learnt so far in their topic, share your own knowledge or develop your own research project, which can be shared in class.
