Astwood Bank Primary School

"A centre of learning and opportunity"



Welcome to Year 4

Dear Year 4 Parents and Carers, 

This half term our topic is Antarctica. This will spread through English, topic and science lessons. The children will learn about survival in the Antarctic and which animals are able to live there. They will create non-fiction booklets, learn about Captain Scott and his expedition, Ernest Shackleton as well as other Arctic and Antarctic explorers. In science they will improve their understanding of temperature using thermometers as well as exploring which materials are better insulators.    

Thank you for your continued support,

Mrs Smart and Miss Lewis
