Digging for treasure!

Year 4 were archaeologists this week.

We followed in the footsteps of Howard Carter and had a wonderful time digging for treasure!

We had to guess what the item could be as we uncovered it bit by bit.

We had to be so careful not to damage the item, so we used paintbrushes to gently brush the sand away from the artefacts.

Would you like to be an archaeologist Year 4?

The Discovery continues: Tutankhamun's tomb

Discovering Tutankhamun

Our first journey into Tutankhamun's tomb: Reliving Howard Carter's experience was amazing, dark. It was exciting to find some treasure and to find lots of precious gold items. It was amazing to find the gold. We were amazed (said Pink group).

Have a look to see some of the things we discovered.

We have started our new Science topic looking at the function of skeletons. Last week we looked at human skeletons and had a go at naming some of the bones.

As part of our multi-faceted learning this week we will be looking at animal skeletons and comparing them to humans.

Leave a comment if you can work out what animal this skeleton is from....

How do you know?

How is it different or similar to a human skeleton?

We will also be looking at what 'vertebrate' and 'invertebrate' mean...Leave a comment if you have an idea already!

Money Problems

Today we were investigating a statement...

"All of these amounts of money can be made using 3 coins or less"

We were given 5 different amounts and then we had to prove whether the statement was true or false.

In our new 'Pyramids' topic, we have been looking at why the River Nile was so important to the ancient Egyptians.

This is what we knew before we started learning

This is what we knew by the end of the lesson!
Fantastic work Year 4!
