Curriculum

Summer Term

Year 4 have been learning all about rivers in particular the River Mersey and the Thames. We have learnt about how rivers start and the journey they take. We have also looked at the uses of rivers and world famous rivers.

Topic - Geography/History

Spring Term

This term Year 4 have been focusing on Ancient Egyptians as their theme for topic and writing. We have been very fortunate to be taking part in a project with the Atkinson Theatre in Southport. This has allowed us to have numerous sessions with an Egyptologist and a writer as well as visiting Bootle Library and the Atkinson Theatre. We have really learnt lots from the expertise knowledge that has been brought into our classroom and have had great fun learning all about Ancient Egypt!

Autumn Term

In Geography, we have been learning about cities, towns and villages. As part of this topic we decided to do learn all about skyscrapers and make a skyscraper project. We started by researching skyscrapers and how they're made. Then we planned out our own skyscraper before making the construction out of rolls of paper. We finally stuck all our cubes of paper rolls together to make a skyscraper shape. Here's some photos of the process.

Science

Summer

We have been learning all about electricity! We found out where electricity comes from and how it gets into our houses. We have also been finding out about conductors and insulators of electricity as well as learning how to draw circuits using the correct scientific symbols before testing them out. Here are some of the electricity experiments we did.

Spring

We have been learning about Sound. We learnt about how it travels and what happens when it enters our ears. Here are some experiments we did on sound including making string telephones and investigating how to soundproof.

Autumn

In Science we have been learning about State of Matter. We decided to act like the particles in solids, liquids and gases so we could understand how they move. Here's some videos of us pretending to be the particles. Can you guess which represent solids, liquids or gases?
