Welcome to Year 4 Indigo!
Stone Age – building Skara Brae
The oldest buildings in northern Europe are in the Stone Age settlement of Skara Brae in the Orkney Islands. We learned about how Stone Age people gave up their lives as hunter-gatherers and became farmers, living in one place all here. We made our own Skara Brae models, complete with furnaces, beds and even people!
Stone Age – artefacts
We carefully examined pictures and copies of prehistoric artefacts to see how technology changed from the Stone Age through to the iron! We made observations about artefacts and learned how they were made.
Nrich – Practical Problem Solving
On Fridays we solve practical problems in Maths, using trial and error or trying each possible solution until we get an answer and seeing what we learned on the way! In this lesson, we were trying to recreate 3D versions of shapes drawn on paper with cubes.
D&T – Moving Pictures
Indigo Class assembled a mechanism with levers and pivots to make their designs of moving pictures come to life!
