Stone age to Iron age
Our topic for the summer term is...Stone age to Iron age! Please find the medium term plan at the bottom of this page, where you will find out all about what we are getting up to including looking at rocks in science and volcanoes linking in with our focus book for summer 1 'The pebble in my pocket'.
As well as all of this, this is a very exciting time as year 4 will be soon going to their residential trip to Thorpe Woodlands where the children will be taking place in a lot of outdoor, active activities where team work and pushing themselves is key.
We are explorers
Our Spring 2 topic is 'We are explorers'. This half term we are going on an exciting trip to Lackford lakes plus putting on a production of 'Porridge' for the school and parents/carers.
In English we are focusing on the book 'Oliver and the seawigs'.
Please find the medium term plan attached below to find out more about what we are learning across all areas.
One of our main topic's for the Spring term is 'Back home'. This topic, follows on nicely from our previous topic of 'All around the world'. This term we will be concentrating on looking at England but mainly focusing on East Anglia. We will link this into many areas including looking at the local history, local artists, local celebrities and local landmarks.
In English, we are going to be looking at the book 'Leon and the place between'. This will be linked around the theme 'All the fun of the fair'. We will also link this with other subjects such as science and DT.
For more details on what we are going to be learning, please look below at the attached medium term plan.
Travel the world
Our topic for the first term is 'Travel the world'.
We will be learning about both the staff's and the children's adventures that they have experienced from around the world, which will inspire us with our work. As well as, finding about about where our peers are from and their different cultures.
We will link this in to a variety of our subjects such as looking at Bollywood dancing in PE, cooking seasonal foods in DT and studying the book Zeraffa Giraffa in English.
We will be leading up to an exciting week towards the end of the term, where the children will be focusing on one country. For this, we will be transforming our classroom and will be visiting the other year 3/4 classes to then study and experience their chosen country.
Children are welcome to bring in any pictures, information or books about countries that they have perhaps visited or would like to visit to share with the class.
