Welcome to Year 4 


Follow our learning journey and join us on our adventures. We are exploring education this year through a leap back in time to Ancient Egypt, a trip across Europe to Italy and ending in the depths of the rivers.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we will.

Year 4 - 2020 - 2021


In Science we have been looking at the topic Animals including Humans. We have been learning about the digestive system and what body parts are involved in this and their functions. We then showed and explained this by using some food and a pair or tights that represented the intestine! We got very messy but the children loved it! 

Most recently we have been looking at food chains and the definitions that are involved with these. We then started to create our own food chains. 

1st December 2020

We have just started our Geography topic - A Study of Italy.

We have located where Millom is on a Map of the United Kingdom and then we went on to look at where Italy and the UK is on a map of Europe! We then went on to look at Italy neighbouring countries, we are all very excited to learn lots more about Italy in the next coming weeks.

Year 4 - 2019 - 2020


Year 4 have been working on their addition and subtraction with 2 four digit numbers using number lines.



Year 4 have been writing letters to the lighthouse keeper in their homemade quills.



Animals including humans

In Science, we have been learning about food chains, teeth and the digestive system. We looked at tooth decay and carried out an experiment with egg shells. We spoke about how important it is to brush our teeth every day and then chatted about foods that are good for our teeth and foods that aren’t. We created an experiment using hard boiled eggs, as the shell of an egg is made up of similar substances. We put our eggs in to different liquids including, water, milk, orange juice, coffee and coca cola and left them for a week. We then looked at the results and were very shocked by the milk!! We also compared our teeth to animals, which we found really fascinating!


Mummifying a tomato!!

Our topic this term was Ancient Egypt. We have been looking at the River Nile and Mummification. In English we have also been looking at instructions. So we thought we would learn how to mummify a tomato and then write our own instructions for another class to follow, It was really messy, but we really enjoyed it.
