Independent Learning in Year 4

Year 4 children have been working collaboratively to create presentations to teach others in their class.


As part of our IPC topic ‘The Active Planet’, Year 4 children have been working collaboratively to create presentations to teach others in their class about natural disasters, such as earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanoes. While different groups of children have acquired knowledge of different natural disasters, they have all been developing the same research skills. There are 6 basic steps that we encourage our children to follow during such projects; Question, Find, Select, Organise, Communicate and Reflect.


In order to explain the content of their presentations to others, children need to have a secure understanding of its meaning. This means that the purpose of the presentations (i.e. to teach others in the class) is a powerful motivational tool to ensure the children’s research is effective.


Learning from their peers has been a valuable experience for the children. They have been involved in quizzes, model making and role play activities all designed by their classmates. It goes without saying that the children have really enjoyed finding out more about these disasters but they are also developing their understanding of how they can become effective independent learners, making decisions and driving their own learning. Well done to the Year 4 research teams.
