Year 4 Curriculum Overview

Welcome to Kingfisher's class page.

We have had a busy half term learning new things. We have studied the Romans, read 'Oliver and the Seawigs', looked at the Creation in RE and have begun learning the guitar in music.

Mosaic Day

Today, everything was about mosaics! We looked at the mosaics of Ancient Rome, then the work of modern mosaic artist Martin Cheek. 

We then went outside the school to look at the wonderful mosaics on the wall.

Back in class we made mosaics in groups, produced a computer version, then designed and made them out of wooden and clay tiles.

Here are some photographs from our 'hands on' day.

Kingfisher and Nightingale classes worked together to create a Christmas tree for St. John's Church Christmas tree festival. We found out that our tree won the 'best tree' competition and we received some delicious fair trade biscuits as a prize.

Our topic this term is 'Our Violent Earth'. We have started to learn about volcanoes and where they are found. 

We used atlases to locate some of the most famous volcanoes and have learnt about the different types.

In art we have used pencil and pastels in our observational drawings of volcanic lava.

Here are some of our masterpieces.

Earthquake Day - 12th February 2019

Today, Kingfisher class became seismologists. We located famous earthquakes on a World map and learnt how the severity of an earthquake is measured. In the afternoon we had fun building structures with marshmallows and cocktail sticks in an attempt to create a building that would withstand an earthquake. 

We then looked at the devastating effect of Tsunamis.

Kingfisher class had a fantastic day at Canterbury Cathedral. We had a tour of the cathedral, focusing on symbols and images that support our learning about salvation. In the teaching rooms we made a pilgrim badge, stained glass window, learnt how to write using a quill and ink, and participated in loads of hands on activities. You never know, some of us may have been inspired to become highly skilled stonemasons, stained glass window designers, arch builders, architects or calligraphers!
