Year 4

Ancient Egypt

This term in Science, the children will cover two topics, Sounds and Vibration, and Teeth and digestion. They will learn about how sound is created and how we, as humans, hear sound. They will also learn about what happens within the body as food is chewed and digested. The children will focus on their science skills of observing, planning experiments and interpreting results.

In History and Geography lessons, the children will learn about Ancient Egypt. They will discover how the Egyptian people lived, understand their successes and explain the reasons for this. The children will link this learning to their English lessons, writing about famous myths and legends and even create their own stories.

Linked to the Egyptian topic, in D&T the children will be creating their own ancient vehicle and complete a planning booklet, in so doing they will practice their skill of working from a design plan.
