Welcome back to the start of yet another exciting term. Our next topic will span the whole of the summer term and take us up to the end of the year. We know you will be as excited to learn about it as we are!
The journey of a tablet: from China to you. Is the impact too great?
In answering this question we are going to be exploring the human impact on global warming, climate change, climate zones, our carbon footprint, vegetation belts and regions, biomes, a cultural study of China and changes to land use, sketching, cooking food and much much more.
We will be using the book 'Dear Children of the Earth' throughout this topic which is a heart felt emotive letter written from the point of view of mother Earth.
Throughout our Science sessions we will be learning more about electricity. What is it? How can we identify types of electricity used in appliances? Can we predict and test complete and incomplete circuits? What are switches, conductions and insulators?
We will also be re-joined by Miss Armitage for the majority of this term who will be completing her final teaching practice placement with us.
The Year 4 Team,
Miss Grafton, Miss Armitage and Mrs W
