    Year Four have been focusing on their second text map for this half term. We are now focusing on instructional texts and we have chosen to retell ‘How To Prepare A Mummy’ using Makaton signs to link in with our Egyptian topic. Today, the children retold the introduction and the list of equipment we will need. I am looking forward to seeing the finished product tomorrow. Super effort, Year 4! You are working very hard!

    (Y4) Role-Play; The Importance Of Reading At Home.

    October 9th, 2017 by and tagged , , , , ,

    Today, the children of Year 4 created a role-play highlighting the importance of reading at home. The children acted two separate scenarios; one where the child read at home regularly¬† and another scenario where the child was unable to read at home due to a busy work schedule. The children then discussed a book on the ‘playground’, showing the comparison between the two scenarios. The Children have worked super hard and their role-plays displayed the message and purpose very well. It was so lovely to hear about how regularly children read at home and how much they enjoy it. Keep it up, Year 4! Well done, you have done a fabulous job.

    Today the children were visited by a very special guest…. Cleopatra! They time travelled 5000 years back into Ancient Egypt and met Cleopatra who told them all about her life. After a wonderful live performance, Cleopatra invited Year 4 to try on some Authentic Egyptian clothing and to learn some Egyptian dance moves. The children also witnessed mummification and then designed and created their very own Wesekh. The children had a fantastic time! I hope Cleopatra made it back home?
