In Year 4 this year we have an exciting new topic where will be looking at the kingdom of Benin. Through this we will be looking at how their culture compares to ours and how our two nations have developed from the 1700s to today. In geography we will be focusing on comparisons between Lincoln and London and the similarities and differences between these two cities. Alongside this we will be helping the children to locate some of the key countries and capital cities around Europe. Both of these topics will feed through our art and DT which will give the children opportunities to study the architecture of buildings in Lincoln and London before having a go at sketching in the style of famous architects and later, using pulleys and levers to build different structures.Excitingly, all Year 4 children will have some fantastic events to look forward to this year. Over the first two terms, all children will be taught how to play the djembe by professional drummers as part of our music lessons. Then, later in the year, they will have their first residential at Rand Farm, before working with the Year 3s in the Summer term to put on their concert.
