In our Science lessons, we are learning about human nutrition. During this topic, year 4 will be focusing upon personal health and how this is related to human nutrition and digestion. The children will investigate the simple functions and the basic parts of the digestive system in humans and they will identify and name the different types of teeth in humans and some other animals, and their simple functions.
Working Scientifically, the children will have the opportunity to set up simple enquiries and fair tests, asking questions and using different types of scientific enquiries to answer them.
In our RE lessons, we are looking at the story of Creation. We will be particularly focusing on how God created human beings in his 'image' and 'likeness'.
In our History lessons, we are stepping back into the 1940's as we learn about what life was like during World War II.We will be learning about how people kept themself safe during the war and what life was like for children.
