8-9 year olds
This half term, Y4 will be continuing their theme ‘Escape from Pompeii’. We will be learning about the lives of people in Pompeii just before the catastrophic eruption in AD79 and writing our own diary entries, imagining that we were there. We will be researching the different buildings that have recently been discovered in the ancient city and recreating realistic models to use as we act out and film our adventures. We will use green-screen filming to place ourselves back 2000 years into the fabulous city before it was destroyed.
In Science we will complete our topic learning about sound and begin our unit of work, learning about the classification of living things and habitats.
We will be working alongside Y3 preparing for our pantomime ‘Aladdin Trouble.’ Princess Jasmine and Aladdin will win our hearts in a tale of good versus evil with a magical lamp complete with three wishes and lots of witty banter which will have you captivated!
In maths we continue to develop strategies for calculations, working towards more formal written methods. We will be using our understanding of fractions to solve problems as well as learning about measures, area and perimeter.
