Year 4 Summer Term 2022

Moats and Coats

Our Summer Topic brings us closer to home and to the incredible landmark right in the middle of Caerphilly town centre - Caerphilly Castle. Through discussion and photographs, we have created interesting questions to help us investigate the local and wider area around us.  

Our learning journey will take us back to medieval times so that we can find out all about castle life and answer questions such as; Who lived there? Why was it built? Why is it made from stone? Who is The Green Lady? We will find out about castle features and landform and how these helped in times of battle. We will also explore what other castles there are in Wales and around the world? 

We will be visiting Caerphilly Castle and getting creative through drama, music and art as well as listening to stories linked to the castle. 

In line with the new 'Curriculum for Wales', the children have generated lots of fun and exciting ideas they would like to explore through all 6 of the Areas of Learning Experience.


Most of all, our journey will involve, learning together, being a team, being respectful of others and developing skills to help us be good citizens. We can't wait!
