North America and Sound
Friday 8th November | 3 comments
Welcome back after the break.
Our topic this half term is North America. We will be studying the counties of the continent in Geography and will look at some of the traditional stories from the region in English. The stories this week were similar version of the creation of the world as told by the Ojibwi and Algonquian peoples, involving Nanabush and Wisakedjak.
In RE this week we have been looking at and retelling the Diwali story. The children created freeze frames to show the story of Rama and Sita.
Our Science topic over the next seven weeks is entitled Good Vibrations. The children will be learning how sounds are created, how they travel and how they can be altered. In DT, we will also be making musical instruments. This week, we investigated which instruments or objects could produce high or low pitched sound. We also noted whether they were quiet or loud and if the sound was continuous or a pulse. Strangely, although we had a variety of high and low pitched instruments, they all seemed to be very loud!
Our special mentions this week go to Daniel, Junior, Ibraheem and Veerpal. They have all started the new half term with brilliant attitudes towards their learning. Well done boys!
Have a great weekend (mine will be quiet).
Mr Beevers, Mrs Kroon, Ms Howells and all the Year 4 team.
