Tedder C P School

Welcome to Class 4 Homepage

Welcome to Class 4!

This term, we will be hopping on a bus and taking a trip downtown where the lights are bright, and every street has a story to tell.

In English, we will be writing leaflets, free verse poetry, autobiographies, emails and newspaper reports.

In this topic, we will be conducting a local history study on Lincoln. As part of this, we will be researching the history of the prominent city building, Lincoln Cathedral. In geography, we will be using our map skills to find out about the urban characteristics of the city of Berlin. In art and design, we will be creating our own versions of urban art, often referred to as graffiti as well as, learning how to use a digital camera.

In science, we will be learning about light, reflections and shadows. We will learn about different sources of light, and that we need light to see. We will be working scientifically and collaboratively to investigate reflective materials, in the context of designing a new book bag. Furthermore, we will be learning that the sun’s light can be dangerous, and will create an advert for a pair of sunglasses that we have designed. We will also have the chance to test which objects are opaque in an exciting investigation to design the most effective curtains, and will find out how shadows change when the distance between the object and light source changes.

We hope you enjoy looking at our work and finding out what we have been doing!
