Yr 4 Topic Map 2019 2020 – This week we will be addressing the objectives highlighted in yellow.

L1  Paint a rainforest picture which includes foreground, background and middle ground in the style of Lowry LS-Lowry-Information-Powerpoint 

L2  This activity links technology and science

Start by deciding which materials to use – the science!

    Monsoon Proof Roof

    Materials

    How would you construct a home? What materials would you construct a home with ? Taking account of the weather conditions in the rainforest, test and decide on which would be the best materials for a roof/walls etc for a tropical home.

    This resource provides a practical context to explore the uses of everyday materials, based on their properties. Children are introduced to a problem of building a flood- proof home, which is faced by families in local communities in Bangladesh, looking at solutions that have been developed to solve this problem. This leads into an investigation in which children devise different types of enquiries to find out if a local material, straw, is the best material to use or if a different material would be better.

    Monsoon Proof Roof information for parents

    Monsoon Proof Roof presentation

    L3   Once you have tested the materials and decided upon the best material to use for this purpose,  design, produce and evaluate your product.

    An alternative option is to design, produce and evaluate a suitable filtration system to ensure tribes in the rainforest have clean water to drink. 

    Record what you have done in a way that suits you but below are some examples of booklets you could choose to print and use or to follow to create your own booklet.
