Curriculum Map - Tomb Raiders

Over the last two terms, we have really enjoyed our topic; Tomb Raiders.  Children have learnt about the Egyptian Gods, life in Ancient Egypt and beliefs and rituals of the Egyptians. As part of the learning, children have made papyrus paper, shadufs and canopic jars. We also visited the British Museum which has really brought their learning to life!

In English our writing has been based on the story 'Secrets of a Sun King.' The children have written trip advisor reviews, newspaper articles and narratives.

Year 4 have worked extremely hard writing Egyptian narratives, which they published in beautiful mini books complete with illustrations, front covers and a blurb.

Christmas in Year 4

Both classes have enjoyed learning and performing their Christmas Song. Willow performed Frosty The Snowman and Sycamore learnt No Room at The Inn.

In English, we have based our writing on the story 'The Invention of Hugo Cabret.' 

                                                         

We spent some time exploring the characters and then re-wrote a part of the story.
