Welcome to The Euros Class!

Mrs Platt is really excited to be teaching Year 4 and have a fantastic year full of interesting topics planned!

This began with our first topic, 'The Groovy Greeks', which focused on greek artefacts, the daily life  and comparing Greece now and then.

We then looked at 'The Angry Earth' and how Volcanoes and Earthquakes are formed and what impact they have. We are looked at how they happen and recreated our own volcano.

Now we are looking at 'Location, Location, Location'. We will be exploring Europe in more detail and creating fact files and travel guides on different countries. We will make comparisons between these countries and England. Also, we will be looking at identifying physical and human features of these places.
