Year 4 Curriculum
Humans vs. Nature – who is stronger?
The Spring Term in Year 4 will begin with a Super Start related to our new topic – ‘Humans vs Nature’. We will explore how buildings are built to withstand earthquakes by working in teams to create the sturdiest structure we can using cocktail sticks and marshmallows. We will then test their stability in an ‘earthquake zone’ made of jelly! For our Marvellous Middle, we will be experimenting with our own volcanic eruption. As a Fabulous Finish, we would like to invite parents to our Natural Hazards Gallery where we will share our work from the half term with you.
As part of our PHSE curriculum, we will be watching clips from Newsround to broaden the children’s understanding of current affairs.
Excellent manners are extremely important. Each week we will focus on strengthening a different social skill.
