Welcome to Y4!
What an exciting term we had with our 'Ciao Italia' geography based topic which involved a virtual tour through Italy.
On our launch day we came to school dressed in the colours of the Italian flag and tasted lots of yummy Italian foods.
We have completed lots of quite tricky map work and studied the physical landscape of Italy, written postcards from Rome and blogs from Venice in our English lessons inspired by video clips of the region (Mrs Fowkes even brought in the Venetian masks she bought when she visited Rome for us to try on)
We made volcanoes in DT and mimicked an eruption using baking powder and vinegar! The finished volcanoes were so popular we had to pick names out randomly to choose who got to take them home.
The unit accumulated with our Pizza project, including a visit to the popular Amalfi White restaurant in Melbourne, who kindly gave us a complimentary pizza making demonstration followed by pizza sampling. We then made our own pizzas in school. (See the class pages for some photographs)
Next term, we will still be continuing with some aspects of our Italy topic, but also including some science work on sound and states of matter. It's always a busy term with the Christmas production and visit to the pantomime.
