2018 Autumn ll Term

What a great start to Year 4 all the children have made! We welcomed the school year in wonderfully for everyone in church with our welcome Mass. We have also enjoyed learning about the Islamic new year, Al Hijrah. The 4th October is always important to our school - when we celebrate the Feast Day of our Saint - St. Francis of Assisi. We celebrated Mass in church and learnt a lot about his life!
This term we have been learning about ancient Egypt. We have found out about the geography of Egypt and the importance of the River Nile. We have looked at timelines for the period and learnt about the mummification process. We have learnt lots about the times by reading our class novel, 'Ma'at's Feather' and writing our own historical stories. On our last day, before breaking up, we enjoyed our visit to Leeds City Museum. We looked around the galleries, saw a real ancient Egyptian Mummy called Nesyamun, mummified our own models and made amulets. We enjoyed taking out the model's brain through the nostrils the best! Well done Year 4!
