After studying the Ancient Egyptians, Year 4 created their own canopic jars to add to an Egyptian tomb. Lets hope they left out the body parts.
Animal Catching Machines
In their Literacy work on explanatory texts the children in Year 4 have been designing and creating Lesser Spotted Animal Catching Machines. They have built wonderful models of their machines and in their literacy work they will write an explanation of how they work.
Big Family Read
Year 4 love books and reading. The children are working hard to improve their reading skills and wanted to share their love of books. The children invited members of their families to join them in their reading session. As you can see, the love of reading has spread.
Mathematics is not just about a page of problems. It can be a fun filled experience. Year 4 children used a variety of maths resources to investigate and solve a variety of problems.
Giant Firework Art
The children were inspired by the theme of Bonfire Night and the story of Guy Fawkes to create their own artwork. Year 4 took the concept of a firework picture to a whole new level by working together to create a giant picture.
Visiting The British Museum
Year 4 visited the iconic British Museum as part of their learning about Ancient Egypt. The children had a wonderful time finding out about the pyramids, sphinx and the mummies. The visit brought history to life as the children could see what they had been learning about.
