Y4 KC/AH

to Year 4!

Summer Term

This term we are learning all about the rainforest. We are reading the book Running Wild by Michael Morpurgo and using it as inspiration for newspapers and other descriptive writing.

 

We have studied the rainforest in terms of structure, flora and fauna and how to survive in a rainforest as well as what dangers you might face if it was your habitat. We focused our study on plants to begin with, looking at what they need to grow and how we can help them survive.

 

We are now looking at the animals of the rainforest and focusing on food chains, food webs, keys and how we can protect these beautiful animals for endangerment and extinction. We are using the books The Vanishing Forest and The Great Kapok Tree to understand the importance of protecting the rainforests.

AUTUMN TERM

Our topic this term is...

 

In our first half term we will explore the origins of chocolate by learning all about the Aztecs. Our English lessons will be based on our class book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and we will be writing detailed character descriptions, writing diary entries from various points of view and then thinking about how the story might end. 

Topic lessons will look at the Aztec Empire, how it was created, how they lived, how the community was organised and all about their demise. Finally we will visit Cadbury World before half term.

In our second half term, we will focus on how Chocolate became one of our most favourite treats and will use our visit to Cadbury's World to research the Cadbury Family. We will also design, make and market our own chocolate bars as well as look at how to persuade people to buy them.
