Spring Term 1: WATER WORLD

This half term our theme is called, 'Water World'

For our Stunning Start, Year 4 will work in groups to prepare a presentation about the importance of water. 

The children will create their presenations based around 6 questions.

What do we use water   for?

Why is water important for our planet?

Why is water important for humans and animals?

How can we save water at home?

How can we save water at school?

What might happen in the future if the planet runs out of water?


Throughout the theme the children will explore five key questions:

  1. What is happens if I melt an ice-cube in a frying pan?
  2. Why does the water on Earth not run out as we use it?
  3. Why can I breathe giant clouds on a snowy day?
  4. What would happen if I drank from a dirty puddle of water?
  5. Why are some areas of the world without access to clean water?

In Geography, the children will explore water on our planet and look at why humans need water. They will also compare water availabiity in the UK and Kenya.

During Science lessons, Year 4 will look at the unit called: 'States of matter'. They will explore different solids, liquids and gases, as well as melting, freezing and boiling points. 

The children will also investigate the water cycle.

In Art, the children will create a painting in the style of artist Katsushika Hokusai. During Religion and World views lessons, they will look at the religion of Islam and answer the key question: what do Muslims believe? 

The children will also start their swimming lessons. 

The Jigsaw topic this half term is: 'DREAMS AND GOALS'. We will also be exploring Children's Rights Article 24: ‘You have the right to good quality healthcare, to clean water and good food', as well as, SDG number 6: Clean water and sanitation. 

Our class book this half term is called 'Why the Whales came' by Michael Morporgo and the Scientist we will be studying is Bernard Palissy.
