The Coming of the Iron Man

The children had a brilliant day learning all about how to stay safe and what to do if there is a fire. Their behaviour was superb!

Maths...

 

In Maths we have developed our understanding of problem solving. To solve addition and subtraction problems, we have used the bar model method.

Have a look at some of the problems we created and then how we used the bar model to solve them.

The Ancient Romans

To introduce our new topic of the Ancient Romans, we celebrated with an Ancient Roman Party!

 

We dressed in Togas, watched a chariot race, ate and drank Ancient Roman foods and even got into the roles of emperors and slaves.

Contructing our Pyramid

 

The Growth...

 

Can you see how our pyramid has changed over the past week. We continue to add our best pieces to our impressive structure!

In Year 4L we have been learning all about the Ancient Egyptian’s pyramids. As a class we decided to build our own. On our pyramid we have started to showcase our best work throughout the topic.

Using Hieroglyphics

We have been studying the use of hieroglyphics in Ancient Egypt. We created our own prints using art straws and cardboard. We then used the prints to create our whole class display. We have studied how the Ancient egyptians created these images on the walls of their pyramids.

Mummification

 

In Class we have mummified our own Pharaohs. We had to adapt some of the steps, but we had a great time going through the process. We are now creating instructional pieces to show this process.

 

We completed the mummification process.

Over the last couple of weeks we have mummified our Pharaoh’s, decorated their sarcophagus and finally added our Egyptian prayers to guide them through to the Afterlife.
