January 2018 newsletter
With our first Y4 topic, ‘Blue Abyss’ we will visit the London Sealife Aquarium and come face to face with magnificent and wonderful sea creatures. In our second half term topic, ‘Playlist,’ we’ll be playing a range of instruments, journeying through the decades and sounds of music making. Our live LSO concert trip will show us what it means to be a true audience!
In our ‘I Am Warrior’ topic, we’ll learn about Boudicca’s revolt, life as a Roman Soldier, meet the very persuasive Emperor Claudius, Julius Caesar and battle through the Ancient Roman timeline. Our visit to the Roman Verulamium Museum will answer this question: How did the Romans change Britain?
Next, is ‘Traders and Raiders’. Discover powerful and brave Saxons who wave their battle axes and brandish their swords as they invade Britain’s shores. Before long, we’ll meet the bloodthirsty Vikings from Scandinavia. What could possibly happen?
Finally, our ‘Road Trip USA Topic’ will take us across all 50 states of the US into the history of of the United States of America. Who lived in North America before the States were made? We’ll discover the sights and sounds of the key landmarks across the USA. Discover the Big Apple and a lot more!
In ‘Stories From Around the World’ we’ll listen to rich storytelling and write our own stories from different cultures. We’ll finish with our exciting African storytelling, drumming and dancing workshop (African Activities).
Our class will be given the chance to participate in our Community Cohesion programme that links our children with the Age UK and cooking for the homeless. It is an excellent opportunity for our children to respond and outreach to all members of our community.
