Class Four

Welcome to Class 4!


Mr Ferguson and Mrs Marron welcome you to Class 4.
This half term our topic is called:

TIME TRAVELLERTick,tock,tick,tock….the hands of the clock never stop. From the moment we are born, from toddler to teen, middle age to elderly, time stops for no man.

Find out what happens to our bodies and brains as we grow older and how we cope with these changes. How long does a human baby take to grow inside the womb? Does it take longer than an elephant calf? Or kitten? Take a good look at yourself...How has your face changed since you were a baby and how will it change as you grow older? Can you photograph it, change it, age it?

And what would happen if the clock struck 13? In 'Tom's Midnight Garden' he travels to the past. What an adventure! Imagine you could time travel too: where would you go and what would you see? Will you head back to your past or into your future?

Tick, tock,tick,tock…..the hands on the clock never stop!
