Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

with Miss Cox, Mr Hameed, Mrs Kauser and Mrs Akhtar.

At Bankfoot, we are committed to providing a culturally inclusive and relevant curriculum to suit the needs of all pupils.

Following consultation with parents, we have designed long term plans for each year group. We have tried to link the topics with countries and cultures beyond Europe. If you have some more ideas that we can include please talk to the teachers. We value and welcome your contributions.

Please take a look below at our long term plan for the 2021-2022 school year.

This half term we will be looking at the Aztecs and the history of chocolate.

As historians, the children will be using the internet, books and newspaper articles to research detailed information related to a particular event and people in history. We will be looking at different accounts of history to understand why these can give a positive or negative view of people in history. During this unit children will be taught organisational skills to carry out independent research on our topic and the civilisations of Aztecs and Incas.

In this awesome topic we will study the civilisation that survived for over 3000 years:

Ancient Egypt

We will study their daily life, using real images and artefacts, learning why Egypt is called the Gift of the Nile; Mummification, why they embalmed their dead; and the most famous Pharaoh Tutankhamen and why we weren't ever meant to find out about him.
