Ancient Egyptian Art
In year 4 we have been enjoying learning all about ancient Egypt. During our art lessons we have been learning about how the Ancient Egyptians used canopic jars. We recreated these jars in our art lessons.
Make a Mummy!
In history, we learnt about how mummies were made. We then had a competition to see who could make a mummy the quickest!
To help the children further understand the process of mummification, they mummified tomatoes!
The children learnt the names of body parts and sang 'heads, shoulders, knees and toes' to help them to remember the vocabulary.
Children in Need
As part of our fund raising this year for Children in Need, we all learnt part of the dance. It was great fun but very tricky in places!
Stone Age Cave Paintings
As part of our learning about the Stone Age, we learnt about how cave paintings were used. We then created our own versions.
Hero Art Work
To acknowledge our gratitude to all the key workers who are heroes, we created portraits. We used photos of people we knew who are our heroes.
4KM Recorder Lessons
The children have worked very hard over the last 3 weeks and have learnt to play Hot Cross.
Stone Age Weapons
As part of our History topic on the Stone Age, we looked at how they hunted and the weapons they used. We then designed, made, used and evaluated our own weapons. It was great fun!
