Autumn Term Y4
Road Trip USA!
Buckle up, sunglasses on. We’re going on a road trip across the good old United States of America. Flying from London Gatwick, and landing at JFK airport New York, it’s time to explore the sights and sounds of the Big Apple. Use your map skills to navigate your way around some of its most famous landmarks and send a postcard home to ask the question ‘Do you wish you were here?’ Learn how to send an email to book a day trip or reserve a room. Make sure you ask the important questions ‘Does your hotel have a pool? Is there 24-hour room service?’ Meet the Iroquois tribe; Native Americans with amazing customs and traditions. Then plan a bespoke road trip for Mr Smith and his family of four. They want to spend three weeks in the sunshine. It’s going to be a long ride. Put the roof down and let the wind blow through your hair. We’re off. In science the ‘Love to investigate’ questions will be:- ‘What conducts electricity?’ ‘How do plugs work?’ and ‘Can you make a circuit from play dough?’
Year 4 have had a brilliant first day back and have shared their memory boxes.
