Year 4 Blog

Year 4 blog

This term, Year 4’s topic is Ancient Civilisations. The children were lucky enough to take part in the first of two BANG days. Their first bang day introduced the children to the Ancient Greeks! They focused on the Olympics and made wreaths which the Olympians were awarded when the Olympics first began. In the afternoon, the children took part in a mini Olympics. All the children took part in one of the most popular events, the Pentathlon. They had a go at discus, javelin, long jump and running however we decided to leave wrestling to the Ancient Greeks! It was a fantastic start to our topic and we can’t wait to find out more.

 

Within Science, they have been looking at electricity. They discussed the dangers of electricity and how to be safe at home. The children had the opportunity to explore some electrical equipment and had to discover how to make a simple circuit. It was difficult without any instructions, but they all managed it in the end!

 

The children are looking forward to learning about the Ancient Egyptians next term and taking part in our second mini bang day.
