Welcome to Year 4!
Welcome children, parents and carers to our Year 4 class page. In Year 4 we learn a variety of fun and interesting topics these are 3...2...1...Blast Off!, Ole, Vikings, Wild Weather and The Curse of the Mummy.
On Thursdays we are very lucky to be taught violins by Salford Music Service who come into school. We need to try to remember our violins every week.
We have lots of teachers and support staff who work with us everyday, they are Miss Unwin, Mrs Watson, Mrs Gardner and Mrs Jones.
To start our amazing new topic, we all completed an archaeological dig to find some hidden Egyptian treasure. We worked in small groups to carefully unearth the artefacts using a delicate brush. Next we had a discussion about what they could be.
One child questioned, "What is the name of the creature on the canopic jar?" Another child asked, "What is a scarab beetle?"
We will research the answer to these questions and more in subsequent lessons.
Throughout the final week of Summer 1, we have been creating our Egyptian canopic jars. Firstly, we painted our covered pringles tube in metallic golden colours. Then, we used paper mache on a balloon to create the shape of the head which we also painted. Once they were dry, we used pens to create patterns and hieroglyphics onto the jar. Finally, we drew on the faces. Here are some pictures below.
