Year 4



Mr Williams



Mrs Tyler/Mrs Gandon



Mrs Constable


Mr Baldwin




This year we will be studying a range of different topics.  In this term we will be working through 1066!

It’s probably the most famous date in English history…… we’re travelling back to 1066!!

These are troubled times and there is danger afoot. A much-loved king is dead and a French Duke has staked a claim to our kingdom. Not to mention all the other wannabe monarchs!

Discover a changing England, shaped by shires, protected by castles and ruled by foreign knights.

Use the famous Bayeux Tapestry to explore the significant events of 1066. What happened when, and how did William come to be called the Conqueror?

Design a castle with defences strong enough to hold back the enemy. What about a space for fine dining and revelry? Try to build a happy (but safe!) home – you’re the architect!

Are you ready for the Norman invasion? Then don your armour and watch your!
