For our final half term in Year 4 we are going to learn what it was like to be a child during World War 2. We begin with a trip to Eden Camp Museum to immerse ourselves in the sights, sounds and smells of wartime Britain. We will also be learning about evacuees alongside reading out class text Goodnight Mr Tom.
This half term, our topic is "Being Human". Our class text is "The Boy at the Back of the Class", from this book, we will be looking at what it means to be a good friend by showing compassion and understanding.
The world is a very strange place at the moment in the current situation we are in. We will be discussing how this may further be different for many children our own age; particularly focusing on the Children's Refugee Crisis which links to closely with our class text. We will be looking at what being human means to us by identifying and discussing our own personalities and traits in an art form to highlight how unique we all are.

In Year 4 this half term, we will be exploring the question "Why is what we eat so important?"
We will explore how our body processes food, write and perform our own food-based poetry and even develop and make our own healthy recipes to persuade other people to eat more healthily. Our class story this half term is James and The Giant Peach, which is another excellent Roald Dahl book. For a full overview of what we intend to learn, have a look at our Topic Web for this half term.
