Egypt Day 2017
Year 4 had a great day learning all about Ancient Egypt with Portals from the Past.
We looked at some fantastic artefacts and discussed what they teach about about the Pharoahs. We also took part in the mummification and funeral preparations for our dearly departed King.
We had fantastic feedback from the group leader and we are incredibly proud of our pupils.
Look how much fun we had and how great our costumes are!
Year 4 have been looking at Volcanoes and Earthquakes for their Geography topic this term.
Some pupils were so enthusiastic that they went home and made their own models for us to erupt.
The Natural History Museum and Living Things
Year 4 visited the Natural History Museum on 5th February in conjunction with their learning about living things in science, and about volcanoes in geography. They classified, identified, measured and weighed various specimen at the museum, as well as exploring some of the exhibitions there.
Back in class we have been learning about habitats and the creatures that live in them. We used classification keys to identify invertebrates in the environment, then had a visitor from the RSPB who taught us about what makes a good environment for small creatures, and how to identify habitats in our school.
Please meet our Year 4 Reading Gladiators. We meet every week after school and over the course of the year, we will be reading a wide range of books. In the Summer Term, we will be meeting with other schools in the area for a Reading Challenge Day, where we will be quizzed on our knowledge of the stories and have our imaginations stretched through creative tasks.
Reading Gladiators also meet in Year 2 and 6.
We will be posting more updates throughout the year.
