Welcome to Year 4!
This term we have been learning about the Ancient Egyptians.
We have been looking at historical artefacts and using our enquiry skills to find out about the Ancient Egyptians; sometimes finding conflicting details, so we have had to look deeper at the sources to find out which gave us a more accurate understanding of the truth.
We loved investigating the artefacts from Hertford museum which helped us understand the mummification process. We brought science into our journey by mummifying apples and tomatoes to see if they decay over the Easter holidays, or if we manage to preserve them as the Egyptians preserved the bodies of their Pharaohs.
Having talked a little about the Pharaohs, we listened to the story of the Exodus, crossing over with RE, and joined Year 5 to experience a Jewish Seder.
