Year 4

Autumn Term (2016)

In Year 4, we will be starting the new school year with a vibrant and loud topic...Brazil! During the first half term, our focus will be on Rio de Janeiro and the carnival that takes place in February every year. We will be taking part in a samba drumming workshop (Look out for us in the playground showing our skills!), playing some popular Paralympic sports, learning about the Brazilian artist, Romero Britto, and finding out about the geographical features of the country.

After the October half-term holiday, our topic will shift towards the Amazon Rainforest. We will be taking inspiration from our core text, ‘The Kapok Tree’ and writing dynamic descriptions about the Rainforest.

In Science, we will find out about the wonderful and weird animals that have adapted to survive in the Amazon. We will be using fabrics and sewing skills in Design and Technology. There is a lot to look forward to!
