It has been another exciting week in Year 4.
This week we became archaeologists and explored the tomb of an Ancient Egyptian pharaoh. We worked in teams to decipher messages on the walls written in hieroglyphics. We learnt that pyramids were built as temples to the pharaohs because the Ancient Egyptians believed that they became gods in the afterlife.
In English, we have been learning about the features of non-chronological reports. We wrote an introduction to a non-chronological report about Tutankhamun and learnt how to edit and improve our writing.
In Maths, we have been learning strategies for bridging 1000 when adding hundreds numbers. If you would like to have a go at this week’s learning, please find it here:
We had our second TasteEd session this week. We were thinking about our sense of touch and about the texture of food in our mouths. We discussed which textures we enjoy and which ones we do not. During the session, we tried two different types of apple and compared the texture of them.
In guided reading we are currently reading The Firework-maker’s Daughter
Thank you for bringing in PE kits, we will continue to need PE kits throughout the week so please encourage the children to keep these in school.
