Our Big Question Curriculum

Big Question

Spring Term

Who Lived in Britain First?

SCIENCE WEEK:

The Big Egg Drop

  We've had an egg-citing time this afternoon testing what would happen to eggs if we dropped them from a height. We decided to change two variables: the material that each egg was protected by and whether or not it was attached to a parachute. The results were very surprising!

What did people eat in the Stone Age?

We have had a gruesome start to Science week this week! The children worked together to investigate and dissect Stone Age faeces to find out what types of food they might have eaten.

 

Biscuithenge

Year 4 have had a brilliant time this afternoon re-building Stonehenge out of biscuits. They showed lots of resilience and patience when the stones kept falling over!

 

 

 

World Book Day in Year 4

The children all looked amazing in their costumes. We had a huge variety of designs from a king to a wizard.

  

 

Science

We tested different liquids using egg shells to see what would happen to our teeth if we did not brush them after drinking certain things. Some of the results were disgusting!

 

    

Aliens

    

Science

We made our own versions of the digestive system.

 

 

Worship

Year Group Worship based on the book 'Tuesday'.

  

Caves

We became archaeologists and explored caves - we discovered cave paintings and began exploring our new big question.

  

Pyjama Day

We all had lots of fun wearing our pyjamas at school - we all managed to stay awake too!

      

Church Worship

During our church worship the children displayed many of the school values and they were all rewarded with a value token each off Mr Hindley and also from Mrs Pilmore. That made 62 tokens in total! Mrs Benniston and Miss Binns are extremely proud of all of the children in year 4.

   

Poetry

The children have been exploring their performing skills using a range of performance poetry and then creating their own.

 

Inspire

Thank you to everyone who gave up their time to come into school to work with their children at our inspire workshops.  

  

  

Circuits

During our Science lessons we have been exploring types of circuits and investigating conductors and insulators.  

 

Sentence Building

The children have been exploring sentences by building them up using different word groups and conjunctions.

 

Teach a lesson

For a privilege the children may teach a lesson, we have been taught how to draw minions and monsters, drama and singing. Some children have even become teachers during our Maths lessons.

 

Music

Some children in the year group shared their musical talents during our music lessons.

   

 

Electricity

The children explored static electricity using balloons. They thought about how electricity moves and how things are charged.

   

 

Battle of Bosworth

We recreated the main events from the battle which took place in Leicester. We took on the roles of the main armies including Henry Tudor and King Richard.      

Dance

In PE we have been dancing to Ghostbusters and developing our own choreography.

  

 

Tudor Blind Date

Which wife would you choose?
