We have a great year in year 4 - read on to find out more!
In our first topic, 'Bombs Away', we learn about World War Two. This is a brilliant topic as we spend time learning about lots of different areas associated with the war; evacuation, the Blitz, rationing and propaganda. We usually visit The Imperial War Museum where we can experience what it was like during the Blitz and being in a air raid shelter.
Our second topic, 'Getting to know you', is based around the book 'Secret Friends'. This is a wonderful book based around a dilemma faced by a girl at school, and so we consider how to resolve our own problems and dilemmas.
In the Spring term our topics are 'Out of Africa' and 'Shaping the World'. During our Out of Africa topic we compare our lives to those who live in an African village. We even learn and perform traditional African dances.
In 'Shaping the World' we read the fabulous book 'Hugo', and learn all about inventors and individuals who have shaped the world as well as exploring instructional writing and biographies.
This is our term for swimming at Wavelengths Swimming Pool, Deptford.
In our first topic 'Friends, Romans and Countrymen' we study the Romans. Alot of our art work this term focuses around the Romans so we have great fun making Roman mosaics, tiles and many other things.
In the second half of the term we move onto the 'Vikings and Anglo Saxons' where we look at settlements and maps, Anglo Saxon jewellery, as well as making our own long boats - can we make them float though?!
