Egyptian day 6th October 2022
Every year the Year 4 classes look forward to Egyptian day in great anticipation. Over the course of the day, the children will participate in a number of activities that bring what they have been learning in topic lessons to life!
Now is the time to start thinking costumes. Will you come as a Pharoah, a mummy or even a cat! The choice is yours. A letter will will sent out nearer the time with more details.

Art and DT
This term, the children will be recreating ancient Egyptian art and traditional patterns. They will then use these to create Egyptian portraits using a side profile of themselves and oil pastels. Its awesome fun!
Following that, the children will be creating their very own canopic jars by upcycling a pringles cube. What better container is there for an organ or two!
Autumn 2 - Torches
Over the course of the first half term, the children will learn all about electricity in science. They will develop their skills to make circuits using a number of components. To build on this, their DT project for Autumn 2 is to research, design and make a torch using a simple circuit containing a bulb, battery and switch made from split pins and a paper clip. Torches were used to explore and excavate a pharaoh's tomb. The children will also make cat statues and other artifacts that may have been found in the tombs.
