Welcome to Year 4!
This term we will be studying Ancient Egypt for the first half, followed by modern Egypt in the second half.
The children will explore the history of Egypt through timelines e.g. pharaohs, hieroglyphics and pyramids. The children will endeavour to build a replica pyramid out of mud bricks - be prepared!!!
As the river Nile is such an important feature we will look at it`s impact over time, including the study of electricity through the Aswan dam project. We will also study tourism which is very important to the modern economy of Egypt.
We will visit Fiddler`s Ferry power station to further enhance our learning.
ALL children must read for at least 20 minutes per night and an adult should record this in their Reading Record Book. Daily practice of their weekly spellings and multiplication tables is also essential.
Each half-yerm a topic based project may be completed to present to the class. This can be in the form of a Powerpoint presentation, poster, written piece or model. The project can also be uploaded onto the RM Learning Platform. On here can also be found other programs to enhance the childrens' learning.
