Wow! Ancient Egypt!

Our first History lesson this term really had the wow factor as we welcomed back Catherine Hammond for a workshop about Ancient Egypt. What did you learn about the Ancient Egytians today?

Year 4 Visit the Abbey!

We visited the Cathedral and Abbey Church of St Alban, to learn more about what life was like for the monks there during the reign of King Henry VIII.  We took part in a brass rubbing workshop and completed the ‘Dissolution Trail’.  What did you learn today?

This week…

English: We are continuing to look at stories from other cultures and this week we have another story for the boys to explore.


We will not be issuing new spellings this week as next week is a busy week with various off timetable activities and we therefore won’t be able to test the boys.

Below is a link to the ‘Handa’s Surprise’ online book to help with the illustrations for homework this evening:


Maths: My set will be looking at measuring and drawing angles using a protractor and then calculating angles without a protractor.


This week…

Maths:  My maths set are looking at converting mixed numbers to improper fractions and vice versa.  Towards the end of the week we will also be revising how to use a protractor.

English: We will be continuing to look at stories from other cultures and this week our class book is an old favourite; ‘Handa’s Surprise’.  The boys will be rewriting the story for an older audience.
