Year 4 Autumn Term

Autumn Term 1

Blue Abyss

A predominantly Art and Design based topic.

Grab your wetsuit! We’re going deep into an underwater world of incredible coral and mysterious sea creatures.

Children will be heading to the Sea Life aquarium in Scarborough in November 2016 (depending on the class that your child is in.) Following the visit to the amazing aquarium, children will then make their way (by coach) to Scarborough beach (weather dependent) to take a stroll on the beach and witness first-hand the crystal blue abyss.

Autumn Term 2

Blue Abyss continued …

A predominantly Art and Design based topic.


Our journey into the Blue Abyss goes even deeper this half term with an exciting visit to the Sea Life Sanctuary in Scarborough.  Here we will get hands on with a variety of sea creatures as well as learning more about the fantastic creatures that live in and around the ocean. 

We will learn what it is like to live in The Tropics and create weather forecasts to demonstrate our knowledge. 

We will research and present information about Jacques Cousteau and find out why he was nicknamed ‘Manfish’. 

We will look at conservation of the oceans and create movies sharing our findings about how tourism is affecting The Great Barrier Reef.
