Welcome to Year 4's page
Summer Term

                                 

We've been studying World War 2 and how it impacted people's lives. We investigated the Blitz in detail and wrote diary entries and poems.

Spring Term

This term so far we have been studying how the Victorians lived.  The highlight of our work was a visit to the Royal Gunpowder Mills in Waltham Abbey.

Take a look at some of our pictures below, and we'll be telling you more details in our sharing assembly later in the year.

 Some dubious looking characters from the past - don't trust them.
