Launch Day Spring 1: Ancient Greeks

The children started the day by sharing some of their homework projects.

Launching into their new history topic, Year 4 explored the Ancient Greeks. We started off with exploring our prior knowledge of Ancient Greece and assembling a timeline together as a class. We watched a short youtube video on Socrates and all the famous landmarks the Ancient Greeks have left in modern day Greece.

Launch Day Spring 1: Londinium to London

The children were launched into their new history topic by exploring the impact of time and key events that transformed Roman Londinium into modern day London. Developing their understanding of change and continuity, they explored maps of London during different periods and used mixed media to create 3D representations showing it’s growth and development while attaining some historical knowledge to contextualise the change around the Thames. Following this, the children created a map timeline showing what Londinium was like in different periods and the journey to London as we know it today.

Launch Day Autumn 2: Rainforests

Year 4 were launched into their new topic all about the rainforest. After showcasing the biomes the children created, they took a virtual tour and found themselves in the middle of the rainforest. They learnt about the plants and animals that live there, as well as researching facts about the different layers of the rainforest. They listened to the sounds and made a jungle inspired beat. In the afternoon, they explored the work of artist Joseph Cornell and created their own mixed media rainforest inspired pieces using printing and collage techniques using things sourced from the rainforest such as tea sugar and coffee.
