Kingfisher class is taught by Mrs Morgan, Firecrest is taught by Mr Killen and Skylark class is taught by Mr Cox.

On this page you can find useful information about the things we are doing in Year 4.


 The Dragon Tree

Our first topic is Anglo-Saxons and Vikings and we will be thinking about 'believing that through endeavour we can be successful by being creative, flexible and embrace change.’

The Legend of the Ashley Dragon

On the School's field is a tree that has been showing some strange changes over the last few years.  A dragon's face has begun to appear! This may be linked to an Anglo-Saxon legend of how a dragon-plagued village defeated the beast and buried deep in the earth to prevent its return.  Is it now time for it to return to have its revenge?

Year 4 will learning about how the legend began and will have the opportunity to write about how the brave villagers defeated the beast.

To help our writing we will be reading 'How to train your dragon' by Cressida Cowell to help us find out how an unlikely hero can think creatively to defeat a dragon.

To enrich our learning we will be visiting Butser Ancient Farm to experience a day in the life of an Anglo-Saxon.
