We are working on.....
Our topic this term is 'Go Wild!'
This term we will be learning about rainforests and their locations as well as climate and native wildlife. We will compare tropical rainforests with woodland areas in the UK and will visit The Scotchel Nature Reserve, which will provide the children with the opportunity to undertake a fieldwork study. The children will undertake a case study based around Rainforests in South East Asia as well as exploring the Amazon rainforest. We will undertake an enquiry week where will we investigate our key question: ‘How is India saving the Tiger?’ We will also visit the Living Rainforest.

This week we have been learning about climate and wrote reports as if we had visited a rainforest. To make it more realistic we used a green screen app on the ipad to turn the classroom into a jungle!

Trip to Butser Ancient Farm
Year 4 had a fantastic time on our trip to Butser Ancient Farm! We had the opportunity to see a reconstructed Anglo-Saxon house and we talked about how it was similar and different to our homes today.
We got the chance to participate in four activities throughout the day. These were archaeology, wattling, rune chalk carving and jewellery making. The children thoroughly enjoyed all of the activities and learnt lots from the hands on experience that Butser provided them with. Below is a couple of pictures to give you a taster of what we got up to. Click on the class showcase to see the gallery of pictures!
