Year 4

With Mr Hodgins and Mrs Mollard

Welcome to Year 4

 

Last term, Year 4 had a historical themed term as they 'Travelled Back in Time'. The children had the opportunity to learn about the Romans and how these historical periods have impacted Britain. They also created their own mosaic artwork and designed their own Roman shields. In English, the children read the Roman myth 'Romulus and Remus' and wrote their own Roman-themed action stories. They also had the opportunity to write their own rhyming poetry all about the fierce Iceni warrior Queen named Boudicca! In our non-fiction unit, the children conducted research to write their own information text all about the Roman army. Towards the end of term, the children also enjoyed setting up a 'pop-up' museum for the rest of the school and parents to showcase their amazing projects and all their school work throughout the Romans topic.

This half term our focus will be Science. Each week we will cover a different topic from: animals including humans, states of matter, sound and electricity using practical experiments and hands-on learning to explore new concepts. We will be also be attending Camp Kernow for our class residential. This will give the children the opportunity to be inspired about sustainability and the natural environment through hands-on experience, adventure and exploration. They will also be carrying out Forest Schools with Mr Jones, so don't forget spare clothes on a Friday!
