Holy Trinity C of E Primary School

YEAR 4

 What Have We Achieved This Week:
 

I WANT MY MUMMY!

Ancient Egypt provides the focus for our topic this half term.  We will learn about the discovery of Tutankhamen and investigate ancient civilizations, looking at comparisons and contrasts with Ancient Greece and their influences on the rest of the world.  In art, we will have fun working with hieroglyphics and making our own ‘papyrus scrolls’ as well as creating Egyptian fans worthy of any god / goddess!

This week we have taken part in lots of activities relating the 7 Wonders of the World.  We have been doing lots of research and creating!

Speaking and Listening homework

From Wednesday to Friday (19th-21st June) Year 4 will be doing short presentations on their passions.

Choose one of your favourite things. This could be a hobby, holiday, person, sport or any other topic that you love and want to share with us.

Use this week to gather information and plan your 3 minute presentation.

You are allowed to make some PowerPoint slides if you want to but this isn’t necessary. Alternatively, you could make a poster; bring in a prop or just talk through your passions with enthusiasm.

If you need to, you can create prompt cards but these are to remind you, not for you to read from.

Remember practise makes perfect!
