Year 4 - Marie Curie Class
Marie Curie was a very famous scientist who worked on physics and chemistry. She is best known for discovering two new elements(radium and polonium), and for developing the use of X-rays and radiation in medicine. The Marie Curie Trust provides care and support for more than 40,000 people living with Cancer and and their families in the UK each year. The charity uses the daffodil as its symbol in much the same way as Remembrance Day uses the poppy. The daffodil is a symbol of the unified battle against Cancer.
People lead different lives. Even people in the same country, the same town or the same street can have different lifestyles. But they can have things in common, too – they can both like the same food or football team! We are going to find out about things that make us different and things that make us the same.
In Society, we’ll be finding out:
About ways of life in different countries
About festivals and celebrations in other countries
In Geography, we’ll be finding out:
What different countries are like
How the climate affects the way people live
Where our food comes from
What people grow and eat in different countries
What products we make in our host country
