Lydgate Infant School

Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

Moby, Joe, Sandra, Nathalie, Declan and Alex are really looking forward to the exciting learning that’s going to take place this year!

We have Amber Class, which is taught by Moby and supported by Sandra and Nathalie and Peridot, which is taught by Joe and supported by Declan and Alex.

Our main topics will include The Tudors and Ancient Egypt in History; The Water Cycle and Rivers in Geography; ‘Into the Forest’, ‘The Iron Man’, ‘Where the Forest Meets the Sea’,‘Wind and the Willows’ and ‘Ma’at’s Feather’ in Literacy.

We have several fun trips planned for the year ahead. To enhance our history topic on the Tudors, we will visit Hampton Court Palace. Later in the year, the children will visit the River Wandle and the Science Museum to accompany our topic of The Water Cycle. We may even have time for a trip to help us learn about plants and animals and why they live in certain habitats. The children will be fascinated by the Egyptian Mummies in The British Museum, learning all about the grisly process involved in mummification, especially how the brain was removed!
