Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

Year 4 started the term off by learning about Noah's Ark. We wrote a persuasive letter to Noah, as the animals asking him all to keep us on the Ark during the flood. We then wrote a newspaper report about the flood. 


Our next topic was Brazil. We wrote non-chronological reports about Brazil. We then went on to writing a diary entry as holiday makers visiting Brazil. For our topic we did some map work and compared the United Kingdom to Brazil. 


Following this we moved on to looking at Samba. We started the topic off with learning Samba drumming as part of the 'Kick It Out' Festival with Cambridge Music at Cambridge United. This led up to the children performing a Samba percussion performance at Abbey Stadium during half time. 

Our final topic for this half term was 'Inventors'. We studied all about inventors such as Charles Babbage who came up with the idea for the computer and Alexander Graham Bell who invented the phone. We did an encyclopedia entry about the computer and a persuasive text to persuade Miss Adams that the phone was the best invention ever made!
