Welcome to Madrid.
We are all very excited for the year ahead.
Our Class Teacher is: Miss Evans
Our Teaching Assistants are: Mrs Kinsella and Miss Foulger
We have already made an excellent start to year 4 and are looking forward to a term that is full of exciting topics to explore.
Our topic in the Spring Term is:
In History, we will be focusing on local History in particular Merseyside, Liverpool and Huyton, researching the introduction of the railway and the impact on the development of Huyton.
In Geography, we will be describing and understanding key aspects of physical geography, mountains. We will discover how the mountain ranges of the world were formed and understand the composition of the earth: crust, mantle and core. We will learn the correct geographical language to describe some features of mountain ranges and the climates experienced there.
In Art, the children will continue to develop their techniques, including their control and their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design. Alongside their new knowledge of plants, the children will discover great artists, Georgia O’Keefe, Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh.
In Design and Technology, we prepare and cook a variety of dishes.
In Physical Education, we will take part in outdoor adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team through Tennis, Rounder’s and Cricket.
Our Science topic for Summer Term 1 is:
Identify and describe the functions of different parts of flowering plants: roots, stem/trunk, leaves and flowers
Explore the requirements of plants for life and growth (air, light, water, nutrients from soil, and room to grow) and how they vary from plant to plant. Children will continue to develop their scientific skills by: comparing the effect of different factors on plant growth.
Investigate the way in which water is transported within plants, for example, by putting cut, white carnations into coloured water and observing how water travels up the stem to the flowers.
Explore the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal.
We are always very busy and have lots of fun learning! Check the articles below to see what we've been up to.
