Welcome back! We are so excited for this year and we can't wait to get to know all of the children. Our first project, which will run until just after October half term, is 'Disputes'. Throughout this topic will be looking at World War 2, Welsh Myths and Legends and how to be good friend.
Children of Wales
Our second topic for Year 4 is 'Children of Wales'. In this topic we will be looking at the Victorians and how schools have changed since then. We will also be looking at coal mines in Wales and schools in other parts of the world. The last thing we will look at is the rights of a child and climate change and what we can do to help. For our fabulous finish of this topic we will be making placards about climate change and going on strike just like Greta Thunberg has done to support climate change!
Who's in Charge?
Our third topic in Year 4 is 'Who's in Charge?', throughout this topic we will be looking at food chains and the animal kingdom. For our Stunning Start we will be having a visit from Falconry UK who will bring in 8 birds of prey for us to look at. We will also be looking at electricity, democracy and the Senedd during this topic!
