At the beginning of Spring Term, year 4 enjoyed watching a volcanic eruption in the playground which led us into our new topic: What makes the Earth angry? Through a range of engaging activities and stimulus, the children developed knowledge of human and environmental factors which impact upon the Earth, including volcanoes and flooding,
In Literacy, the children created volcanic poetry using a variety of figurative language to describe a volcanic eruption. Using a beautiful wordless picture book about the effects of a flood on a family and their home (Flood written by A.F.Vila), the children rewrote the story altering the setting and characters.
At the end of our topic, the children worked collaboratively to create and present a news flash about a natural disaster, which they had learnt about through History and Geography.
Travelling back through time, the children started the Summer Term In Ancient Greece.
