Autumn Term 2
This half term, we are learning about the Romans. We will be exploring countries that they invaded and explore life as a Roman compared to life in Britian today. Through DT and Art sessions, we will create Roman mosaics and chariots, evaluating our designs along the way. In Literacy, we are reading 'Escape from Pompeii' which will lead us to write our own tragedy story. We will be developing many grammatical skills and varying our sentence structures, whilst learning about the explosion of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD. In our Maths lessons we are currently further developing our addition and subtraction skills in different contexts.
Keep a look out for our 'Christmas Around the World production, we are working hard to rehearse for this and are very excited to perform this.
Autumn Term 1
This term, our theme is Kaleidoscopic. We are exploring different artists and creating a range of artwork using colours, patterns, materials and different techniques. We are also creating our very own kaleidoscope alongside a piece of instructional writing which will show other children how to make a kaleidoscope. In Science, we are learning about sound. We are thinking carefully about how sound travels and will be designing and making our own musical instruments using recyclable materials. We will also listen to pieces of music and think about how they make us feel. We will then chose colours to represent those feelings and create sound art using paint. In English, we are currently reading the story The Day the Crayons Quit which we are thoroughly enjoying. In Maths, we are learning about place value and working hard to recall all of our times table facts. Year 4 have settled in well this term.
