Autumn 2 - Ancient Egypt
To start our topic this half term, Year 4 were lucky enough to go to The British Museum to learn all about Ancient Egypt. First, we went into a room with lots of sculptures from the Egyptian times. Next, we went into the Ancient Egypt rooms, where we got to see real mummies and sarcophagus'! This was a brilliant day and we can't wait to learn more about it in our topic and English lessons. Have a look at the pictures below.
In our English lessons, we have been focusing on instructions, so Mrs B made a shaduf (an Ancient Egyptian invention which was used to get water from The Nile.) We noted down the key information of how to make a shaduf, ready to write the instructions. See the pictures of our shaduf below. (We gave it a 2019 twist!)
In art and DT this half term, Badgers have been working hard to design, make and package their own chocolate bars! They first decided on the ingredients they would like. Then, they made their chocolate bars. Finally, they looked at packaging of other chocolate bars and created their own packaging. As you can see, we were really happy with the final result!
In computing, we have been focusing on animations. We used an app called Zu3D, which allowed us to take multiple pictures to create a moving animation. We had to draw our backgrounds, mould our figures out of plasticine, take the pictures and add in any text we wanted to include. Here are a selection of our animation movies. We hope you like them!
