Spring Term 1

This term the children in Year 4 will be embarking on a learning journey

through the story of the Titanic as part of our AMAZING INVENTIONS unit!

 

As writers we will be learning to write a variety of first person recounts of our imagined experiences as passengers on The Titanic. We will use our experiences in using drama and role-play to immerse our understanding and inspire our learning

 

As readers we will be building our vocabulary associated with ships, sea-faring and icy climates and magpie-ing  words from a selection of exciting Titanic related literature.

 As mathematicians we will studying multiplication and division, as we prepare to dive more deeply into fractions and decimals.

 As scientists we will be exploring the topic of States of Matter.

 As Geographers we will discover the places worldwide involved with the Titanic and its route, as well as looking at our local area of Greenwich.

 As historians we will compare our lives now with the lives of those who boarded the Titanic. We will do this through our focus on the maritime history of Greenwich.

 As artists and designers we will be looking at creating works inspired by The Titanic exploring different mediums.

 As philosophers we will endeavour to identify what makes us kind and responsible members of our community and society. We will explore the idea of responsibility for the sinking of the Titanic.
