Year 4

Year 4

2018 - 2019 



It's probably the most famous date in English history - we're traveling back to 1066! 


A much loved king is dead and a French Duke has made a claim for our Kingdom (Not to mention all of the other wannabe claimants!) 


Will we be able to persuade the Witans that we should be the rightful heir to the throne? 

Burps, Bottoms and Bile!



We are on a voyage of discovery to investigate and discover the busy world inside our bodies.  To do this we are going to be testing the effect of sugar on our pearly white teeth, seeing if we can identify an animals poo, investigating whether beans really do give you wind and much much more! 

Demon Dentist by David Walliams 


This term our English text is The Demon Dentist! So far, Alfie has had a terrible experience with the new dentist, Miss Root, and is refusing to ever go back to the dentist again! 

It is up to Year 4 to write him persuasive letters to tell him why he should go back to the dentist using everything they have learnt so far this term.  

Do baked beans really make you windy? 


This afternoon we have conducted a very important experiment, do beans make us windy? Year 4 grouped together to conduct this experiment; we compared the gas produced in beans to yoghurt.  Why not ask your child why we placed the bowls on top of the radiator over night? 


What will happen to the clingfilm I wonder? We will have to wait until tomorrow for the results! 


Year 4 

2017 - 2018

In Religious Education, we have been exploring Christian symbolism, especially during Christmas. Ask your child to explain what each part of the Christingle represents.






Sussex Road would like to convey their huge thanks to Tony De Saulles, celebrated illustrator/writer. Tony delivered an informative, amusing and creative workshop to Year 4 about the digestive system through the medium of illustration. Following Tony's visit, Year 4 produced their own illustrations which then featured in their own stop-motion animations.






























In 4SW, we have been making our very own dips, proving that even healthy snacks can be delicious as well as nutritious!


1. Preparing our ingredients



2. Tasting our dips


We made guacamole, tzatziki, cheese and chive, houmous and salsa. Ask your child if they can remember the main ingredients in each dip (one of them is very easy!).




At the end of term, 4SW showed off all the amazing Anglo Saxon and Viking artefacts they'd crafted and later traded 'across the border' with 4AH



In 4SW, we have been testing Archimedes' Principle - upthrust and buoyancy. The Anglo Saxons and Vikings were skilled boat builders so we decided to put our

skills to the test. Congratulations go to Freya for building a boat capable of holding 19 multilink cubes before eventually sinking!
