Year 4’s MISSION STATEMENT 2021-2022
This year we want to be the best and happiest class in Bankfoot.
We will always follow the rules to keep everyone safe.
We endeavor to arrive at school on time with the correct equipment.
We will work hard to achieve a high score on our Multiplication Tables Check.
As a class we will be outstanding at all times.
We will strive to be the quietest class and line up sensibly.
In order to learn, we will listen to the teachers and to each other.
Year 4 will be polite and treat everyone with respect.
At Bankfoot, we are committed to providing a culturally inclusive and relevant curriculum to suit the needs of all pupils.
Following consultation with parents, we have designed long term plans for each year group. We have tried to link the topics with countries and cultures beyond Europe.
This half term we will be looking at the Aztecs and the history of chocolate.
As historians, the children will be using the internet, books and newspaper articles to research detailed information related to a particular event and people in history. We will be looking at different accounts of history to understand why these can give a positive or negative view of people in history. During this unit children will be taught organisational skills to carry out independent research on our topic and the civilisations of Aztecs and Incas.
In this awesome topic we will study the civilisation that survived for over 3000 years:
We will study their daily life, using real images and artefacts, learning why Egypt is called the Gift of the Nile; Mummification, why they embalmed their dead; and the most famous Pharaoh Tutankhamen and why we weren't ever meant to find out about him.
Our topic is 'Crime and Punishment'- all about the crime and punishment through the ages from the Roman times, to the present day.
