Year 4

Mighty Mountains: Spring Term 1

During Spring 1, Year 4 will be learning about mountains in detail across the curriculum areas and largely focusing on geography. We will be locating the key mountain ranges in the world; what are the key features of mountains and understand aspects of physical geography. We will also find out about human geography, how mountains affect tourism, the role of the mountain rescue team and debating whether tourists should be allowed to visit dangerous mountain regions.

We will be using maps, atlases, globes and computers to research, map, locate countries and describe features studied. We will be designing shell shelters in DT to aid survival on mountains.

Ruthless Romans: Autumn Term

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

                         Our art focus will be looking at and creating Roman mosaics, and we will be looking               at teeth and digestion in our science work. Our exciting music this half term will also be linked to the Romans!

Our Science topic will be ‘sound’ where we will be investigating pitch and volume and finding patterns between the pitch of a sound and features of the objects that produced it.
