Year 4 News

This year started by Year 4 welcoming the Ancient Egyptian Pharaoh Cleopatra. From her, we learned lots of fascinating information and played the first ever known board game, mancala, played with tops and whips and learned an Egyptian dance. We also created prototypes of the Ancient Egyptian water moving device- the shaduf. In English, instructions have been written about How to make an ancient Egyptian plaque and How to build a pyramid. We have learned that the people in this civilisation were extremely innovative. Our Reading Parent workshop focussed on the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb- we have really enjoyed this topic. Homework coming in is also great and I am learning lots more information about Egypt, 4,000 plus years ago...
