Year 4 Topic Bundles or Classic Topics: what's included, and which is best for you

Year 4 Topic Bundles: best for learning progression and comprehensive National Curriculum coverage

Year 4 (and Year 3) Topic Bundles include four thematically-linked schemes of work across a range of subjects. Each scheme of work includes 5-7 complete lesson planning packs, with everything you need to teach that subject over approximately half a term.

Each scheme of work is designed to teach to specific National Curriculum lower Key Stage 2 objectives and provides comprehensive coverage to assess pupil progress against those objectives at the end of the teaching sequence.

Year 4 Classic Topics: best for a varied, fun creative curriculum experience

Year 4 (and Year 3) Classic Topics include 16-18 lesson plan packs. They contain one complete scheme of work comprising 5-7 lessons which will cover some specific National Curriculum Key Stage 2 objectives in detail. The remaining lessons cover a broad range of subjects and include many enjoyable, creative learning activities for a varied cross-curricular learning experience!

Which type of PlanBee Year Four Cross-Curricular Topic is best for you? Whichever you choose, we're confident you'll have loads of planning and resources to teach over half a term or more, and which fits in well with your own thematically-linked lesson planning.

Don't forget to grab the free additional resources (above), too – there's detailed overviews/medium term plans plus editable assessment grids to help you track your pupils' learning.

Resources at your fingertips

We really do mean this! Whether you want an individual lesson or a complete scheme of work, our teaching packs come with a detailed lesson plan that walks you through an engaging input, a slideshow presentation to go with it, differentiated activity ideas, and — in most cases — a range of printable resources such as worksheets, activity cards or writing frames. If anything else is required, you'll be able to see at a glance, as everything you need is listed at the top of every plan!

Written by professionals

We're qualified primary teachers with extensive classroom experience. We know how hard the job is! That's why we try to give you as much as we can with every teaching pack – to help you and make life easier. We've obsessively pored over the National Curriculum objectives to make sure that you get excellent coverage when you teach with PlanBee, and that you get engaging, challenging learning activities with which all of your children can achieve and make progress.

It only takes a moment to sign up with PlanBee and start downloading, so you can claim back a bit more You time! Our Complete Series of lessons come with assessment questions and marking grids, too – it's another way we've tried to make the incredible job you do that little bit easier!
