Our next topic is all about the Peak District vs Ile de France. Children will be learning all about these two places and will be able to tell you lots of new facts. The children will be focusing on Geography this half term and hopefully will feel like they have actually been to these two places through our immersion in the topic.
We have began Autumn 2 with a fantastic trip to Lea Green. All the fun we had can be seen on the school twitter page.
Our new topic is natural disasters. We have been focusing on volcanoes and earthquakes and the children have been learning lots.
We started the unit with an amazing VR headset experience.
One child brought in a mini volcano and we had the chance to watch it erupt as a class.
We are looking forward to an exciting year in Year 4. We have lots of exciting opportunities planned already this half term including our residential visit to Lea Green, and learning how to play the clarinet.
This half term we will be exploring the following within our lessons:-
English - Non-Chronological Reports
- News Reports
Maths - Place Value, including counting, reading and writing numbers up to 10,000.
- 99 Club
Science - Sound
History - Roman Britain
RE - What is the purpose and value of a sacred place?
Music - Clarinet
Keep checking back here to see us thinking, exploring and questioning in all of these lessons.
We have been making Roman roads this week out of biscuits and custard. This was great fun reading and following the instructions so we know what is required to write clear instructions for others. In our English lessons we are learning how these are written and we will be writing our own instructions soon.
We had lots of fun!
