Birchwood Junior School

Year 4

We’ve punched in the date to 336BC on the Birchwood Bus back in time. However, before jumping on, what is on the list of must see tourist hotspots?

How about stepping onto the battlefield and meeting Alexander the Great? The leader, who built the unstoppable Greek Empire. We discover how he took his army from rubble to conquering huge chunks of Asia.

A cracking start, but how about something with a city view? Well, let us snake through the bustling markets of Athens and Sparta. With a few silver Drachma coins in your pocket there are plenty of things to buy. We will understand how Greeks lived day to day, while asking ourselves how life was different from Ancient Egypt and the Stone Age. Remember, historians always need to look for clues!

We hop back in the time machine and it’s a big jump forward but trust me the trips worth it because this guy Leonardo Da Vinci is an interesting mind. This incredible artist will help us to imagine our own amazing ideas to sketch and paint.

So in Year 4 there is lots and lots for us to see and do. Growing together will help us all to improve. We can’t wait to see you in the classroom!
