Welcome to The Euros Class!

Mrs Platt and Mrs Baldock are 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 'Flow' where we will research various rivers for their location and what they were used for in the past. We will also be studying Monet for our Art topic.
