Summer Term - The Human Body

Summer Term - The Human Body 

 

This term Year 4 are learning about the Human Body. 

 

We have used Pupil Voice to choose areas we would like to investigate about the Human Body. Here are some of the questions we have generated:

 

  • How can we move our body? 
  • How strong are our bones? 
  • How do we feel things? 
  • How does our mind work? 
  • How do we feel pain? 
  • What are we made of? 
  • How do we breathe? 
  • How do we hear things? 
  • How can we see things? 
  • Why does our eye sight get worse the older we get? 
  • How does our heart keep beating? 
  • Why do we have to drink water and eat food? 
  • How do we smell things and food? 
  • Why do we have nails and hair? 

 

To be able to answer our questions we will need to learn about:

  • The Skeleton
  • Muscles
  • The Brain 
  • Nerves
  • The Respiratory System 
  • The Circulatory System 
  • The Digestive System
  • How to maintain a healthy lifestyle - diet, exercise, mental health

 

Important dates that link to our topic:

  • 3rd May - Deaf Awareness Week
  • 3rd May - Sun Awareness Week
  • 10th May - Mental Health Awareness Week

Croeso Blwyddyn 4! Welcome Year 4!

It is the start of our Spring Term and our topic for this term is DRAGONS!

 

We will be exploring this topic on Google Classroom at home, so make sure you're logging in to Google Classroom every day to find your home learning. 

 

Here is a snippet of the what we will be exploring this term:

- Dragon stories --> How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell and Tell Me a Dragon by Jackie Morris

Making a Moving Dragon --> we will be learning about pneumatics to design and make a moving dragon model using recycled materials at home.

 

How can you help?

Encourage your child to go on to Google Classroom every day to complete their Home Learning tasks.

We will be making a dragon out of recycled materials later in the term, so it might be good to start collecting empty boxes and recycled materials that will be good for creating a model of a dragon.
