Welcome to Year 4!
This term Year 4 have been learning about:
We started our topic by tasting different brands of chocolate. From this we wrote a chocolate review. Using our knowledge of chocolate we then designed our own chocolate bars. We wrote adverts to persuade people to buy them. We made our own chocolate bar, designed the packaging, made the packaging and most importantly tried our own chocolate!
The topic started by looking at the River Nile. We concentrated on its uses and why it was so important to the Ancient Egyptians. We looked at the structure of rivers and what happens during a flood. We learnt how to mummify a body and made our own mummies (out of clay!). We wrote instructions on how to do this for other people. The other pieces of writing we have covered are diary entries from a pyramid builder and a non-chorological report about the ancient Egyptians.
We started the topic with a visit from the Pantomime to watch Robin Hood. From this we then wrote our own play scripts about Robin Hood. We have also been testing Christmas baubles to test their durability and writing up our experiment.
Watch This Space!
Next half term we will be learning about the Amazon Rainforest.
