Year 4 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Year Four
We hope you enjoy visiting our Year 4 page which shows the exciting learning that happens in our classrooms. Click on the links below and take a look at the photographs to see what we've been up to. Please follow us on Twitter @CanonYearFour for daily updates and reminders.
Our topic this half term is:
Grab your wetsuit! We’re going on a deep sea adventure.
This half term, we’ll visit an online aquarium to gain an insight into the ocean world. We’ll sketch different creatures and create clay sculptures of our favourite. Using maps, globes and atlases, we’ll identify the world’s oceans and seas. We’ll also find different ways of grouping living things. Diving back into the 1800s, we’ll learn all about the HMS Challenger. We’ll research Jacques Cousteau and learn about his exciting explorations. As a challenge, we’ll create model submarines using recycled materials and program an onscreen submarine. We’ll study Antony Gormley’s Another Place sculpture. After locating the Great Barrier Reef on a map, we’ll learn about the risks it faces.
At the end of the ILP, we’ll listen to the soothing sounds of whale song and write ballads about whales. We’ll invite you to visit our online ‘Oceans art gallery’ and learn about sustainability.
Help your child prepare for their project
Oceans are remarkable and fascinating places that are full of life. Why not visit the coast together to see an ocean or sea up close? You could also look at an atlas or online map to find out which seas and oceans surround Britain. Alternatively, work together to create an under-the-sea collage using different materials to represent the plants, creatures and water
