The class organised their own mummification ceremony. Everyone came to watch whilst the Pharaoh was bandaged and put in his sarcophagus.
4S are working hard to get their Young Leaders Award. This year we are working alongside the elderly visitors at Bramley Lawn. We have found out all about the visitors who go to Bramley Lawn and enjoyed celebrating Christmas with them. It was lovely to see our MP Rachel Reeves on one of our visits.
Year 4 had a great morning consolidating their learning and understanding of the Judaism topic, with a visit to the Synagogue. Special thanks to Mr and Mrs Taylor who explained everything clearly. The children had loads of questions about the scrolls and Jewish traditions, and they listened carefully and answered questions from Mr and Mrs Taylor well. There were some eager volunteers to wear the Tallit and help to get the Torah scrolls from the ark- including Mr Midgley.
Year 4 had a fantastic WOW day learning all about Egyptian gods, food, hieroglyphs and the discovery of Tutankhamen's tomb.
Year 4 had a great time at the Nick Sharratt exhibition in the Leeds Central library. There was loads to find out about Nick and how he started to draw. We enjoyed dressing up and drawing.
The children used ICT to photograph their own weird images using perspective. They appeared to be 'eaten by crocodiles, suspended from a giant hand and weight lifting an enormous marker pen'.
On 13th September it was Roald Dahl Day. The children in Year 4 celebrated his achievements, by reciting some of his poems and making their own costume for one of his characters.
