24.11.23 Egyptian Day 

Today, Year 4 had an Egyptian day where pupils came to school dressed up as famous Ancient Egyptians and archaeologist. During the day, we had a mummification competition, lessons on reading hieroglyphics, designed death masks and completed a 'tomb excavation' activity to learn information about the Ancient Egyptians from artefacts.

This afternoon, Year 4 were very excited to visit the Broadway Art Gallery. At the gallery, they explored and analysed paintings using the knowledge they have developed in their Art lessons so far this year. 

 

09.02.24 Anglo-Saxon Workshop

Today Year 4 had a visit from Siward Braders. He spoke to the about the Anglo-Saxons, where they came from and why they came to Britain. Everyone discovered lots of information through an interactive quiz, they learnt how to play different Anglo Saxon games and explored different artefacts and what they can teach us about what life might have been like in Anglo Saxon times. 

 

15.03.24 Viking Workshop

Today we were visited by a Viking! He brought lots of artefacts for us to look at. We discussed what they were made from, what they were used for and what they could tell us about the Vikings. Did you know the Vikings had irons?! Here are some of the artefacts we looked at. Can you work out which one is an iron? 

27.03.24 Recorder Lessons

Today, Year 4 had their last recorder lesson. Pupils have really enjoyed their lessons with Jenny who brought in a range of other instruments to share. Pupils listened carefully to each instrument being played and were able to ask questions about them and compare them to the recorder. 

28.03.24 Easter Day 

To help learn about the Easter story which Christians believe, Year 4 completed a range of art activities. They also discussed other world views and how Easter is celebrated as a secular festivity.
