Our topic 'Active Planet' and Roman Day

At the start of our topic ‘Active Planet’ we turned the Year 4 block into a Disaster Relief Centre. The children had to create signs for the public so they knew where to go, a first aid area for the injured as well as catering for those who were hungry. The children had a fantastic day learning what it might be like in the aftermath of an earthquake.

In addition, the children learnt about the eruption of Mount Vesuvius during the ancient Roman times. They had visitors come into school to help bring the learning to life. As well as dressing as Romans, they made jewellery, ate Roman food and learned about Roman medicine. They loved how disgusting it was!

Year 4 Roman Day

Children in year 4 enjoyed meeting our visitors 'The Sunjesters' who told them about Ancient Rome. The children were fascinated learning about Roman medicine. It was gruesome! They also tasted some food that Romans may have eaten, some was more tasty than others.

Science Lessons!

Volcanoes Erupting! - In Science, the children have been learning through the topic 'Active Planet'. They have been finding out about rock types and tectonic plates which cause volcanoes to erupt. They made their own volcanoes from clay and then used bicarbonate of soda and vinegar to make them erupt.
