"You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have." Maya Angelou (African American Poet and civil rights activist)
Welcome to Year 4
Our main topic for this term is ‘Our Wonderful World’. We will explore this topic through Science & Literacy (where we will look at a wordless epic sea adventure book called, ‘The Whale’ by Ethan Murrow). In science lessons, the children will be exploring living things and their habitats. Within the first few weeks, the children will be given a Learning Organiser for their science learning. We are hoping this provides a useful aid for your discussions at home and may help you in supporting your child with their learning.
Big ideas: influence and innovation
Inspirational People: Aly Raisman, Li Quan, Wangari Maathai & Lauren Child
Li Quan is a Beijing-born tiger and wildlife conservationist who lives in London.
“Tigers are surely one of nature’s most beautiful designs. I’m helping restore the environment and the ecosystem, just as nature designed it. What project could be more beautiful?”
Our Big Question this term is How can we influence change? We will be asking questions such as:
- How do habitats change throughout the year?
- What are the positive and negative human impacts on the environment?
- How do we change the negative impacts on the environment?
