Class 4

Welcome to Class 4 - Team 4. 


In Team 4 we are encouraged to make mistakes as they help us to learn. 

Never give up after a mistake, but instead learn from it and keep going.

Proverbs 24:16 For the righteous falls seven times and rises again, but the wicked stumble in times of calamity.

Philippians 3:12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.


The Team 


Our classroom 

Autumn term topic - World War 2

What we will be learning:

In class 4, we will begin the year by exploring a crucial piece of British history. The children will continue to build upon their ever increasing understanding of chronology, making links between themes and understanding the impact of each era upon the next. They will be able to explain how people's lives have been shaped by events and what impact the war had on the wider world.


The children will build on previous learning of war to consider the expansion and dissolution of empires (making links to further Empires); considering not only achievements such as the Enigma machine, but the follies of war; explore historical concepts such as continuity and change, cause and consequence, similarity, difference and significance, and use them to make connections, draw contrasts, analyse trends, frame historically valid questions and create their own structured accounts, including written narratives and analyses; discern how and why contrasting arguments and interpretations of the past have been constructed; and consider the cultural, economic, military, political, and social history that impacted upon Britain today.


The main theme of the study is to explore an aspect or theme in British history that extends pupils’ chronological knowledge beyond 1066:

  • a significant turning point in British history, for example,  the Battle of Britain
