Our Topic this term is ‘All Around the World’

We will be teaching the majority of our lessons through this topic. The children will have loads of input regarding their learning and we will work together to plan fun and engaging lessons which marry up to the new curriculum objectives. 
We want learning to be fun and engaging for our children to learn, thrive and thoroughly enjoy their time in Year 4.
