Summer Term 2022- Were the Vikings really vicious

This term, the Year 4s will be going back in time to find out what Britain looked like before and during the Viking Age. We will learn about historical events such as the Battle of Lindisfarne and focus on where and how Britain was invaded by various Viking tribes as well as discussing their reasons for invading Britain.  

To help us find out if the Vikings really were vicious, we’ll spend time learning what it meant to be a Viking, find out more about their culture, learn about their famous kings, warriors and the important Pagan Gods they believed in.

Spring Term 2022- Could Some Natural Disasters be avoided?

To kick-start the term, our year 4s discussed what our school values really mean and how a positive mindset can help make us successful learners. We played games, talked about our goals and dreams and started working in teams using a TASC wheel to create 3D exploding volcanoes.

During the term, the children learned about natural disasters. As Geographers, we pieced together a visual map of where natural disasters occur and discussed the difference between man-made and natural disasters. Building on our knowledge of rock types in Year 3,  we looked in more detail at the earth’s layers, plate tectonics and how volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis are created. Using our geographical skills, we used maps, atlases, and computers to locate the ring of fire, and regions identified, to describe their features.

Autumn Term 2021 - What have the Romans ever done for us?

This term, the Year 4 children pieced together a timeline of when and why the Romans invaded Britain, how far the Roman Empire spread and discovered why the Roman army was so successful.  They investigated the Roman way of life in Britain and contrasted it with life  before and after the Romans settled here.  They kick-started their proect with a visit to nearby Littlecote House to see the Orpheus Mosicac.  Their visit was run by The Hungerford Historic Association who talked to the children about the villa, the mosiac and daily life for the Romans, including their diet which included snails and dormice!
