Year 4 2019 - 2020
Welcome to Year 4
Miss Wildig & Mrs Tootell
We have been having an AWESOME time travelling back thousands of years to the banks of the Nile, where we have been learning all about the amazing people and places of Ancient Egypt.
We went to the Palace Theatre in Manchester to watch the gruesome stage show ‘Awful Egyptians’ and discovered:
- If you had a toothache you were advised to cut a live mouse in half, then while it was warm and fresh place it in your mouth.
- A pharaoh would jump in the river fully clothed if he’d accidentally touched a pig because they were considered unclean.
- As a status symbol, pharaohs often wore a false beard made of wood and hung by wire from a band around their foreheads.
After the show we received a very exciting letter from the BBC and an opportunity to create our own episodes of ‘Horrible Histories’ linked to the Awful Egyptians … come and have a look at our Study Books and use the QR codes to watch the episodes we have created … BEWARE they are very scary!
Here is a sneaky preview ...
As part of our work on instruction writing, we became Egyptian embalmers. In order to mummify a body, we firstly needed to practise … but on a tomato! For more information, take a look at our news items ...
