Lathom Junior School

Year 4

Welcome to Year4!

Here, you will find out about all the learning that is taking place in Term 2.


This term, we have been studying the book ‘How to Train your Dragon’ by Cressida Cowell. We have interviewed each other pretending to be different eye-witnesses.  Also, we practised using inverted commas to create quotes and finally completed a newspaper report about the boys’ attempts to capture a dragon. 


In Maths, we have been learning about different units of measure and perimeter. We have converted different measures between km and m, m and cm, cm and mm. Throughout the term, we have also been working very hard to learn our multiplication tables.


In Science, we have been learning about teeth and the digestive system. We explored the role that teeth play in digestion by eating an apple and a cracker and exploring using mirrors. We carried out an investigation using bread a bag and different liquid to help explain what happens in the digestive process.


We have been investigating the effect on different liquids on teeth. First, we placed eggs in different beakers and made observations each week of the effect of the liquid on the teeth. The egg shell represents the enamel on our teeth.




In History, we have been learning about Anglo-Saxons. We have researched different aspects of their life and presented our information to the class. 


In Computing, we have recently enjoyed an Hour of Code. In Year 4, we practised writing code for a game called Mine Craft, which was quite tricky but it was rather amusing.
