Drop Pins - Take 2

Published Tuesday, October 29, 2013.
Last updated: Tuesday, October 29, 2013

This half-term we continue our Drop Pins theme but we move on to our second key question:

How do natural disasters shape the Earth?

We started off this half-term thinking about what we might need to know so that we can answer this question. We listed as many different natural disasters as we could and then thought about whether these changed the shape of the Earth - that is, the shape of the landscape?

Our big focus is VOLCANOES. What do you already know about volcanoes?

Today we had a fun Science morning where we started to practise investigative skills and learn about materials, particularly how materials change and solids and liquids. Check out the front of the Year 4 webpage for some photographs.

Can you use the following vocabulary when you are talking about materials?

solid liquid viscosity melting solidifying consistency

Wombat has lost his mum! What is he going to do?
Well, if you read this book you will find out if he will succeed on his journey through the open lands of Australia to find his mother. Or will he get lost and find other animals and wonder helplessly over the vast and open space?

Drop Pins

 This week we have started our new learning theme, "Drop Pins". Through this theme we will be learning about landmarks and landforms.

Our BIG question for this theme is:


Our key questions for this theme are:

  •  What are the features of different places and how are these being protected for the future?
  • How have natural disasters shaped the Earth?
  • How do natural disasters affect people's lives? 

To start off our theme we began to investiate different landmarks, starting with some that we see regularly around our school. We had a year group quiz to see if we could recognise them all.

After that, we watched a clip of the seven ancient wonders of the world. Can you remember which of these still remains today?

Next, each class investigated a different famous landmark.

 Our "wonder" was Christ the Redeemer, a 38m tall statue that stands on Corcovado Mountain overlooking the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We have started to create models using paper, polystyrene and masking tape.

Keep checking here for pictures of our completed "wonders"!


Our Home Learning project has begun and is to be completed by Monday 14th October. Click on the image for details.
