Today, Year 4 took part in an Egyptian workshop. The day begun with the children learning about sand dances and the children creating their own. After this, the children discussed the structure of pyramids and had to use their bodies to create their own pyramid shapes.
They also had fun in racing against the clock to mummify their class mates.
In the afternoon, the children completed a carousel activity which comprised of hieroglyphic reading and writing; stencil printing and jewellery making.
For Shrove Tuesday, the children in Daniel class enjoyed pancakes. The children learnt that Shrove Tuesday is celebrated because it was the last opportunity to use up eggs and fats before embarking on the Lenten fast and pancakes are the perfect way of using up these ingredients.
Have a look at some the fantastic Egyptian Tomb Projects the children completed over the February half term. Some have even placed mummies inside their sarcophagus’.
Next half term we will be learning about Ancient Egypt. Over half term, we would like you to create an Ancient Egyptian tomb. You will find inspiration on your homework sheet.
For RE homework, you need to answer the AT2 question on the blog and create, through art, your interpretation of the station of the cross. You can pick 1 or do all of them. These can be 2D or 3D.
We hope you all have a lovely holiday and we can’t wait to see your amazing projects when we get back.

Today in Art, we used our stamp sketching from last lesson to draw up our final stamp design on A3 paper. We made sure to use a range of textures, shapes and patterns to represent our heritage.
For careers week, Year 4 were visited by Davina who works in coding/programming. Davina talked about her job and then she opened up the floor for questions from the students. Y4 enjoyed learning about a new career.
