Year 4 2019 - 2020
Welcome to Year 4
Year 4 is a great year for consolidating the learning expectations initiated last year whilst developing as individuals in terms of independence and responsibility.
One area the children will have the opportunity to demonstrate this, and broaden their horizons, is through the First Access Music Scheme which will be on Thursdays. Over the next few weeks, the children will have the opportunity to try a variety of woodwind, brass and percussion instruments before choosing one to learn how to play. We are very lucky to have professional musicians from the music service, Mrs Thomas and Ms Carver, to lead the sessions and teach the children.
Our topic for this term is learning about the Roman Empire, why they invaded Britain and the impact it had on us. This will be explored through all areas of the curriculum including English, Maths, Dance, Geography, Design and Technology and Art!
We have planned a visit to The Grosvenor Museum (date to be confirmed) to extend and enhance our learning linked to our topic. The visit is an opportunity to have practical experiences of Roman artefacts, explore the Roman ruins in Chester and to appreciate the museum’s galleries.
We will be investigating 'Sound' in science this term by exploring and identifying the way sound is made through vibration in a range of musical instruments and objects. This will also involve finding out how the pitch and volume of sounds can be changed in a variety of ways.
We will be looking for patterns, making predictions, suggesting ways to make our testing fair and examining our results.
This topic fits really well with our First Access Music programme and is an exciting way to explore sound and music.
