Welcome to 4P's page!
Miss Platt, Mrs Capper and Miss Kinsley will be keeping you updated with all of our learning in Year 4.
Learning at home
Here are some fantastic websites for the children to practise the skills they have been learning in school, at home! Especially their times table facts, readying them for the test next year.
Today 4P had our forest school afternoon with Paul and Gerrard. The children used their knowledge of Egyptian mummies and had to compete to create the best one! Team 1 won!
The children then had to work in teams to make models out of clay and create a captivating story to showcase at the end. Finally, before we left the children were all able to roast a marshmallow on the fire, Team 1 got two for being the winning team!
During our Egyptian workshop we; explored the layout of Ancient Egypt and who ruled where. Then looked closely at artefacts, some of which were over 3,000 years old! After, we played an Egyptian children's game and became fact finders, answering a range of tricky comprehension questions. In the afternoon, we took part in mummifying a Pharaoh - how disgusting that was! We got to take out his organs, put them in Canopic jars, and then lay the mummy to rest in his very own Sarcophagus. (Which happened to be a little small). Finally, we used the Ancient Egyptian method of measurement - hands and fingers, to measure how tall we were, and even how tall out teachers were. Miss Platt is 2 hands taller than Mrs Capper.
Our class novel this half term is - 'The Time Travelling cat and the Egyptian Goddess'. We currently are following Topher and Ka's realtionship as they grow closer, and become more dependent on each other. Will they time travel back to Ancient Egypt?
