Year 4

See-Saw
 
Learning activities can now be found on our Remote Learning Platform - See-Saw. All children should have a code to access See-Saw, which they will be able to use to complete and upload activities to. 
 
There are a set of four really helpful videos to watch - they will show you how to access learning activities, how to save them and send them to your teacher, and how your teacher will respond to you. Thank-you to Mr Folly for putting these together.

Autumn Term

The Autumn term kicks off with a bang, looking at the Norman invasion of Britain. We explore William The Conqueror’s victory at the Battle of Hastings looking at how the event was documented using the Bayeux tapestry. We will be printing our own Bayeaux Tapestry, writing our own story using historical settings and exploring how we hear music. In the 2nd half of the term we look at life 100 years ago – as well as considering life without electricity and identifying what children did after school all that time ago, we will also be creating our own torch.

Spring Term

During the Spring term we use our learning to understand the reasons and consequences of the Roman invasion of Britain. Why did they come? What did they think when they landed here? We will explore what Roman life was like, the things they ate and also consider if we would rather be a Gladiator or a Premiership footballer! In science we will explore what happens to your food as soon as it is in your mouth. We shall explore teeth, the different types and functions of them before looking to see what happens to your food as it travels through your body (some of this gets a little bit smelly and disgusting!). We use this information to write a non-fiction text about the journey our food takes when we eat it.

Summer Term

In the Summer term we look a bit closer to home, and identify why it is so many people love Cambridge. We look at the importance of the River Cam to Cambridge, and how this helped to change the city over the last 100 years. We will explore the architecture of the university buildings, using our art lessons to create water colour paintings. As part of our Cambridge topic we shall also be taking a trip to the City ourselves! This term is also when we go on our exciting residential trip. Over the Summer term, pupils will interview parents to find out more about their life. This information is used to create a wonderful art montage detailing a parent's life. We look forward to creating these and sharing them with you.
