Welcome to Year 4
Class Teacher: Miss Heyward
Over the course of this half term, Year 4 will begin with a scientific study focussing on forces. During this learning enquiry, we will be observing and how friction is affected on different surfaces. In order to do this, we will be using toy cars and ramps to test how far cars travel on different surfaces around the school. Before we begin our investigation, the children will be working in groups to come up with a hypothesis to test. This will be a part of our plan, do, review process that we are working on to investigate forces. After we have completed our investigation, we will then reflect upon how it went and then redo the investigation.
After completing our scientific study, we will be embarking on a geography enquiry where we will be looking at how people live in Greece. We will look at the impact of climate change and the increasing outbreaks of wildfires. Children will learn about the interplay between the environment and how it impacts on daily lives of people around the world. In this enquiry, children will learn about the devastating impact of wildfires - not just for Greek farmers and villagers, but also on the cost of Greek exports, such as olive oil.
Our PE this term will consist of 2 lessons per week, one taught by Mr Bradley and the other taught by Miss Heyward. In this half term our focus is gymnastics where we will be working in the hall and developing our skills on different pieces of gymnastic equipment.
