Summer Term 2024

World Traveller.Com

 

Welcome back Year 4 to the Summer Term of 2024. I hope you had an 'eggcellent' Easter break and are refreshed ready for an 'eggciting' term and topic of learning.

The Summer term topic, in year 4, is geography based, themed, “World Traveller.Com” in which the class will be learning about the wider world with the aim of answering the question: ‘Who lives in a place like this?’. The class will learn what human and physical geography is, including the population and culture to mountains and rivers of a country. This will be followed by the children investigating these geographical aspects of a specific European country enabling them to compare and contrast with the UK, exploring the physical and human geography of each country, Children will also find out about how tourism affects each of the two countries.

Welcome back Year 4. We hope you've had a sensational summer break with lots of wonderful memories to share. This term, our topic has a historical theme: 'Rotten Romans' in which we'll be asking the question: "What did the Romans Do For Us?" 

During the course of the term, we will be taking a historical look back on how the Roman Empire was created; how the empire expanded across so many countries; daily life during Roman times contrasting Italy with England; Roman life in Lincoln and why our city was such an important staging post plus Boudicca's revolt. Through all of this, we will investigate how the Romans changed our lives and the legacy they have left.
