Welcome to the Year 4H class page. This year I am your teacher and our class is supported by Mr Jackson. This year I am looking forward to having lots of fun, working hard and learning lots of new things together. Mr Jackson and I hope to create an exciting and stimulating learning environment with opportunities for all children to learn and reflect. We also hope to equip your child with the skills needed to succeed in school and in the wider community. To find out the topics we will be studying, visit the Curriculum page. I can't wait to see what this year brings for us all!
In our History lessons, we have been learning about mummification and canopic jars. We have started to create our own canopic jars! We used papier mache to cover Pringles tubes.
During Forest School, we have been carving hieroglyphics into clay. Here are some of our photos.
Today was an extremely busy day! We had our first guitar session with Mr Nicholson and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! We learnt the names of the strings and played along to our first song, The Medieval Dance.
We also made crispy cakes with Miss Hewitt during our science lesson today. We have been learning about solids, liquids and gases and we studied the changes to the chocolate. Here are some photos of us in action!
This term we are studying a text called Secrets of a Sun King by Emma Carroll. We have been looking at how we could use drama to help us understand how the characters were feeling. We looked at the specific events of Chapter 2.

To start our Ancient Egypt topic, we received a visit from Richard That History Bloke. He told us lots of important things about Ancient Egypt, including how to welcome someone in Coptic. We learnt about the process of mummification and practised bandaging our friends! We also wrote our name in hieroglyphics on a cartouche and played an Ancient Egyptian game called Three Men.
