This term in Harbour Class...
What a wonderful start to the Summer Term in Year 4! I have been so impressed with the Ancient Egypt topic learning the children have completed over the Easter Break. It has been fascinating listening to the children teach each other and me about the unique aspects of Ancient Egyptian civilization they have discovered.
The children have already shown excellent problem solving skills by deciphering hieroglyphics to decrypt encoded messages. Some children have also learnt how to solve mathematical equations using Ancient Egyptian numerals! They have also constructed pyramids from different materials and created pyramid sunset art using charcoal and chalk.
In literacy this term, we will be focusing on newspaper reports and writing fictional narratives based on factual events. Children will learn some Ancient Egyptian myths and also the story of Tutankhamun, including the discovery of his tomb in the 20th century.
In science we will be learning about plants: their different parts, what they need to live and grow and the stages in their life cycles.
