Topic

Welcome back Year 4, we hope you all had a wonderful Easter and are all keeping well. This term our topic is Out of Africa and while we are not in school we will post weekly activities linked to the area we would have been focusing on. We will also post a weekly Science and French activity.

Week 1:

History: Nelson Mandela is the significant individual we will be focusing on. Research who he is. Write a biography, fact file or even create a power-point presentation about him. Things to include; date of birth, date of death, family, interesting facts, why is he a significant person?

Science: Our focus will be Living Things and their Habitats. What are the 7 characteristics that makes something a living thing? The acronym MRS NERG may help! Design a poster explaining the characteristics. Can you make a list of living things you may find in your local environment and those you may find in Africa. Try and include animals and plants.

French - create a menu or draw your favourite meal and add labels
