Disaster Strikes in Year 4!

In Year 4, we began the year by thinking about what a town needs - the buildings, the people, the open green spaces, the transport.

There was just so much to consider when thinking about what a town needs! After much discussion and debate in our classes we finally decided on the design for our perfect towns.

Over the following two weeks, using a variety of resources, the children built and decorated their towns, creating large models, which they were incredibly proud of. Following their completion, the children reflected on what they liked about their town and if there was anything they could do to improve them further.

However, during break time on Monday disaster struck as what we now believe was a hurricane, swept through the classrooms causing significant damage to the towns. The children were outraged and upset when they discovered the initial damage to the town. What happened? Who did this? It’s just so unfair!

Following the initial outrage, the Year 4 children then began to think about how people who experienced such a disaster in real life, to their own homes and towns, might feel and what we can do to help. The children discussed how important it was to feel empathy for those who suffer through such disasters and began to consider what comes next. The anger and outrage quickly turned to inquiry and empathy. How can we rebuild? How can we help these people? What even causes hurricanes?

Armed with these questions and a desire to find out more, the Year 4 children will now embark on our topic of ‘Active Planet’, in order to discover what causes such disasters and to develop a greater understanding and appreciation of our planet.
