Week beginning 16th September
In science this week we have made pan pipes to see if the length of a straw affects the pitch. As part of our drama-based English activity we created a conscience alley for Hogarth (a character from The Iron Man) using modal verbs to ask him questions.
Week beginning 9th September
We have made a great start to Year 4 in class 9! We were investigative journalists, using modal verbs to as questions in english. In science, we made drums and 'dancing rice' as part of our sound investigation into vibrations. We took part in an enquiry-based information hunt as we tried to discover why the Romans invaded Britain.
In history this half term we will be looking at the Roman invasion of Britain. Around 2,000 years ago, Britain was ruled by tribes of people called the Celts. But this was about to change. For around a century, the Roman army had been building an Empire across Europe. Now it was coming for Britain! In AD 43, the full might of the Roman army landed on the beaches in Kent. Over the next year it battled inland, storming through hillforts and chopping down anyone who stood in their way. The Romans wanted Britain's precious metals. However, we will explore the fact that they weren't just a destructive force - they built new forts, new settlements and roads. They spread their culture, language and laws.
Our new science topic is sound. We will explore how sounds are made when objects vibrate. What happens in your ear as vibrations enter. We will find out more about how sound travels, pitch, volume and man-made sounds.
