We have made a very busy start to life in Year 4! Our learning has revolved around our new topic of ‘Temples, tombs and treasures’ – during our English talk for writing sessions and during guided reading we have been exploring the Egyptian stories of ‘Staying out’ and ‘The Egyptian Cinderella’. In our Maths learning we have been investigating ordering 4-digit numbers, the 6 times table and rounding. During PE we have been furthering our ball skills and in ICT we have created repeating patterns.
We have enjoyed painting our names in Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphics during our Art sessions and discussing our feelings during our new Jigsaw PSHE lessons. We thoroughly enjoyed two trips to the museum on successive Wednesday afternoons, where we participated in a workshop exploring Ancient Egyptian artefacts and then explored the Egypt section – making sketches and notes as research. A great beginning to Year 4 at St Michael’s!
