Mme Cachou-Kirkham will be teaching the children French on Wednesday afternoons followed by Mrs Lawton, who will be teaching computing.. During year 4 the children work around cross-curricular topics, which change every half term. These themes link to English, Maths and Science where possible.
During this term the children will investigate volcanic eruptions and particularly study the impact of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius on Pompeii.
Romans - The Empire Strikes! (Autumn 2)
This unit links closely to writing a journal in literacy. Children plan and write a diary entry as if they were a scientific researcher based in Antarctica and also in the context of being an Antarctic Explorer. They will recall, select and organise historical information about Antarctic explorers – Shackleton, Scott and Amundsen and their expeditions to the South Pole.
The children will learn about Anglo Saxon invasions and settlements in Britain. They will discover the tools and materials that the Anglo Saxons used when building villages. The children will investigate the historical evidence that remains from Anglo Saxon settlements, including place names and artwork.
