Today 4A have been looking at the impact of screen addiction on young children. Their creative elements were tested as they had to create a new product that would help to reduce screen addiction, it’s some very convincing adverts.
Today, 4A had an amazing time as part of our Egypt topic: we had our very own Egyptologist come and visit us! He gave us a wonderful insight into the life of Ancient Egyptians and it was an excellent way to round off our topic for this half-term.
We got to go through some amazing new discoveries, discussed how mummies were made with a role-playing activity, before finally inviting parents in to wrap them up like mummies too!
A huge thank you to Michael and Freya for their hard work today – the session was excellent and the children left talking about it extremely enthusiastically!
Last Monday, 4A became historical detectives when researching all about the Ancient Egyptian pyramid building process. They had 16 clues to look at, courtesy of ‘Key Stage History’, and in pairs, they had to decide whether or not ‘slaves’ built the pyramids or not.
The class were not completely unanimous, but they certainly agreed as a class that the slaves did not build the pyramids.
Our blog will be updated regularly with information about school events, examples of children’s learning and also additional work and support for children at home.
Our class blogs provide our children with a real audience and purpose for writing, as well as sharing photos of the learning we undertake.
Please feel free to comment and give us feedback on any of our posts.
Your comments will be monitored before going live and then will be shared with the children.
