Lighting up the dark months
Year 4 have really switched on in science this term, working as a team to build electric torches. We've also been experimenting with different ways of working out maths problems to celebrate Barvember (Bar Models).

Have a great half term!
Enjoy a relaxing half term. Here's some pictures of the Sea Otters exploring their new bit of kit, a studio green screen. Watch this space!
Year 4 have been getting creative, painting abstract portraits of ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses. We also wrote a guide on how to create a mummy, before having a go ourselves!
Time to timeline...
We had fun putting Ancient Egypt in its place, relating it to other historical periods. It was tricky as some civilisations overlapped!

Ancient papyrus making
We had a fantastic (and very sticky) time making our own papyrus to cover our Topic books. Just like the Ancient Egyptians, we pulped paper, tore it into strips and layered it for added strength. The results look very authentic!
A master storyteller visits...
We we very lucky to have a visit from Jamie Crawford, who told us the myth of Isis and Osiris (and his jealous brother, Seth). In a workshop, he showed us how to act out our stories, using different voices and actions.
Welcome to Year 4!
