Autumn Term 2021 Learning

Year 4 dived into the second part of the Autumn Term, where we immersed ourselves into the wonderful world of water.  We learnt about the different stages of the Water Cycle and how essential this process is for our precious planet to thrive.

We studied the Peak District, carefully observing the different terrains and how water accumulates there. We made playdough models of the peaks, and by using a pipette, observed how precipitation changed into surface run off then accumulated – tricky stuff! Just ask us how we did it.  Next, we studied the Cornish coastal town of Boscastle. We learnt about the catastrophic flood of 2004. We discussed the human and physical causes as to why the flood was so significant.  We got our hands dirty and had a go at filtering our own dirty water.

  As part of our writing journey, we created our own ‘Water Cycle’ waterfall booklets. Our writing itself involved improving our understanding and use of paragraphs and subheadings, and sequencing the Water Cycle accurately. We especially loved building our knowledge of expert words, ready to use in our book.

Our theme ‘Rhythm of the Rain’ was also driven by our science learning journey, where we have learnt all about ‘Sound’.  At the beginning of the theme, we didn’t know that sounds are made from different vibrations. We grew our brains by learning new scientific vocabulary and investigating how different sounds are made. Our favourite learning moments were making our own sound muffling headphones – handy for a noisy event, and our own upcycled musical instrument which was great fun to share with our friends.

As we approached Christmas, we have loved being able to practise our singing skills and loved collaborating with the rest of Key Stage Two for the QI recording at the church. Our R.E. journey explored the concept of ‘Holy’. We developed our understanding of the significance of Mary to Catholics and Christians. We enjoyed meeting Father Jeremy from Sacred Heart of Jesus and St. Peter the Apostle, Waterlooville. Asking him different questions was our favourite part.
