Welcome to St Clare's, we are a centre of excellence for "Talk for Learning"!

Mrs Nicholls and Mrs Ormandy Welcome You To Year 4!

We are so excited for the upcoming year as we work hard and learn together. There are lots of exciting and fun things planned for the year ahead- so let's get started!

Spring 1 Term- Why is London Such a Cool Place To Live?

This half term we will be focusing on Geography looking at settlements and trading in our global economy. We will be focusing on London as our main case study and comparing it to other key settlements around the world.  In science we will be learning about electricity and how it powers our lives and global communication. 

Autumn 2 Term

This half term in Year 4 we are historians and Romans! We will be learning about Ancient Rome and about all of the wonderful inventions and traditions they gave us- many of which we still use today! By studying the question; "Why were the Romans so Powerful and What Did We Learn From Them?" we will explore many areas of Roman life, from the early invasions and spread of the Empire, to sports, leisure, and entertainment! We will end our learning with an exciting 'Roman Day' - so start practising the bedsheet togas!
