Autumn 2 Message from Miss Bamber
Hello from the Year 4 team of myself and Mrs Wilkinson. Onto our second half term in Year 4 and we have lots of exciting learning ahead of us. We will be starting this half-term with our Anglo Saxons topic, looking at the history and also creating Anglo Saxon shields as part of our Design and Technology learning. Then we will be looking at British Values and the importance of mutual respect and diversity. After, we will be exploring Electricity in our 'High Voltage' Science topic, completing lots of exciting experiments over the two weeks! Finally, we will be finishing the term off with an RE topic called 'Let there be Light!' and looking at why the symbol of light so important to so many people, whilst focusing also on the celebration of Diwali.
