Year 4

Spring 2 - The mysteries of the Maya

Our second topic this spring term is all about the Maya. We will be exploring the Maya Empire and comparing it with British History. As the Maya discovered cacao beans, we will be carrying out chocolate related activities and will practice our culinary skills by creating a Mayan Feast during our design and technology work. Our science will focus on the changing state of matter.

Mighty Mountains - Spring Term 1

This half term we will be describing and understanding key aspects of mountains within our physical geography work. We will be using maps, atlases, globes and computers to research, map, locate countries and describe features studied.

In English we will be writing creative mountain poetry, starting off with raps! We will also be designing shell structure shelters in D.T to aid survival on a mountain.

In computing, we will be meteorologists and present the weather!

'I really enjoyed going outside and using data loggers because you could measure the temperature.' Olivia 

 

'I liked checking the wind speed and direction.' Ben

'My poem was great!'  Ruby

Today we wrote onomatopoeia raps.

Powers and Potions - Autumn 2

Our second topic this term was: Powers and Potions. Our work revolved around the creation of imaginary worlds and adventure stories. Our Science topic was 'sound’ where we investigated pitch and volume and found patterns between the pitch of a sound and features of the objects that produced it.

Ruthless Romans - Autumn 1

Our first topic during the Autumn term was: Ruthless Romans. We learnt about the Roman invasion of England and the rebellion of Queen Boudicca. We also considered what the Romans did for us and their importance in shaping England as we know it today.

                         Our art focus was to examine and create Roman mosaics which was an enjoyable task. In our science we looked at teeth and digestion. Our exciting music this half term was

also linked to the Romans!

Take a look at our gruesome Science experiment - we recreated the digestive system and tracked the food as it travelled through our bodies.

'The digestive system was disgusting, but so much fun!' Luke

 

'I loved seeing it come out of the tights!' Jacob
