INVENTORS AND INVENTIONS

INVENTORS AND INVENTIONS 1
Our topic for the second half of the Spring Term is Inventors and Inventions.  We will be learning about the importance of the Islamic Golden Age and the inventions that were discovered at this time. Science lessons will help us to understand forces and then we will use this information to make our own inventions.

Welcome to Spring! 

During the first half term, Class 4 have studied the topic Earthlings where we learnt all about Space and wrote a leaflet displaying all the facts we had learnt. We also welcomed Mrs Turner to our class and the Year 5's really enjoyed writing their own limericks with her.  In Year 6, Miss Morgan has been helping us to start to prepare for our SATS.

FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD!

FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD! 1

Our work this term is one close to Class 4`s Heart! Food Glorious food will take us around the world, looking at traditions, cultural choices and of course our own favourite  foods. We will continue our journey investigating food miles, looking at where ingredients come from and which foods we export, from the United Kingdom.

In Science we will be learning about different materials and how they can be changed by heating or cooling. We will be looking at reversible and irreversible  materials and how we use this understanding when we cook.

Dressed as a 10th Century  a visiting Viking warrior will focus on the life story of one Norseman from birth to death.

Through curriculum-relevant role play, questioning and activities he will  encourage  each pupils to ask perceptive questions:

  • Who were the Vikings?
  • Why did they leave their homeland?
  • How did the Vikings live and do battle?
  • What did the Vikings believe about life after death?
  • How do we even know the Vikings existed?
  • How did the Viking shape the history of modern Britain?

He will provide on his visit  exact copies of real artefacts found through archaeological investigation

Welcome to class 4

 

Our topic this term is A Kingdom United. 

We will be looking at the united Kingdom, finding out where this name came from and what it means to us today.

 

In History and Geography we will be looking at how our Island has changed over time.

We will focus on how people have invaded and settled in Britain and look at how that has changed the way we live today.

Our visiting Viking will explain to us how life was different in his life time and help us to understand why the Vikings invaded and settles in Britain.
