Spring Term 2023
Spring 2 Foundation Subjects
This half term, Year 4 are answering the question 'How do you keep healthy?'. In Design and Technology, we will be learning about seasonality in foods and how we can use this to create a healthy and sustainable diet. This will link to our Geography learning, in which we will discover where some of our foods come from through map work, 8-points of a compass and 4-figure grid references. We will also learn about the water cycle and rivers in Geography.
In Science, we are learning about the parts and functions of the human digestive system, including teeth. Later in the half term, we will be learning about food chains.
