Mrs D Riley


Mrs G Whitham

Welcome to Year 4 Mrs Riley is the class teacher and Mrs Whitham is the teaching assistant. This year we will be starting with our topic 'Is it right to fight?'  We will be having our own WW2 day where we can all dress up and experience different aspects of the life around this time. We will be going to a local garden to visit an anderson shelter. We will visit a WW2 barracks and try to begin to understand what our ancestors did for us when they went to war to help us have the life we have today.  We will finish the topic with a VE day celebration for our parents and carers We will be reading some exciting novels in our new reading area and find out why reading is so much fun. 

Key Questions for learning.

  • What would they bring from home if they were a refugee?

  • Why did we go to war?

  • What was life like during and after the war?

  • Which countries joined the war?
