Year 4 2020 - 2021
Miss Mackenzie and Mrs Johns have enjoyed getting to know Year 4 during the first week, and have been blown away by the amazing work that they have all produced. They should all be very proud of themselves.
We are excited for you to continue being an archeologist next week, as we continue to go back in time to explore the Egyptians. We hope you are all enjoying our new topic, Tomb Raiders so far.
The Learning Happening This Term
In Maths this week we focused on creating four digit numbers. We all went outside into the garden and found different numbers, and created a four digit numbers using these. Then, to extend our learning we looked at which numbers was bigger and which was smaller, and had to explain why.
In English this week we went on a treasure hunt around the garden to find adjectives to describe how one of the characters in our new book 'The Gold in the Grave' felt about being asked to rob Tutankhamun's tomb. Next, we used these adjectives to help us create freeze frames, so that we could get into character as Paneb. Finally, we wrote these sentences down in our books, and will be using them in our diary entry.
In Science, the children will develop their ‘tomb raiding’ skills, as they explore light and develop their knowledge of reflection in order to use mirrors and see around corners to find different obstacles that may be in the way inside the pyramids. Once inside the tomb, the children will complete a range of investigations to understand the changes of state.
In Computing the children will create an Egyptian Mummy using the computer programming software: ‘Scratch’. They will explore how to create a sequence using their Mummy as they take it on a journey through Egypt.
In Art, children will explore Art from the Egyptian times in order to create their own piece of Egyptian Art work using clay. In Design and Technology, we will create a Mummy’s tomb that opens using a simple pneumatic system.
Religious Education includes studying different faiths, with a focus on why is the Qur’an and Mohammed important to Muslims?
Music involves creating a hieroglyphic transcription of their own composition.
In Languages we will be concentrating on allowing the children to express their personal opinion.
Today, Year 4 took part in an Internet Safety Talk from the local police
We learnt all about how to stay safe on the internet. One of the children commented saying that " she really enjoyed the talk, and could they come in again?"
