What a great first term we have had in Year 4. The children and all the staff have enjoyed all the art and craft activities. We have used mod roc to wrap our pretend Pharaoh’s (which ranged from large teddies, to plastic dolls, we even had bananas) and then created a sarcophagus for these to go into. We made Nefertiti using a milk bottle, Egyptian jewellery, we even mummified tomatoes.
Take a look at our photos to see just how creative the children have been.
As well as being creative at school the children have produced some fantastic pieces for their homework. We really have been wowed by the time and effort that has been given to these pieces of work.
It hasn’t all been art work this term. The children have also written some brilliant instructions and a newspaper report about their exciting Egyptian Day.
The Daily Discover
Tomb Comes to Thame!
The children had an amazing at John Hampden school. Clever Cogs company thankfully came in and set up a brilliant tomb in the Jackson Hall. The children stated that it was the best day ever in their whole life!
On the 8thof October, John Hampden school Year 4’s sent out a search for 8 missing treasure chests (they were mini ones). Dr Jones they called him, put the children in pairs and each pair had to find a mini reassure chest. Inside the chest were scrolls.
Indiana Jones Comes to Town!
John Hampden Year 4 go on a vital treasure hunt, making important decisions on their way. Reading hieroglyphics to find out what happened to Dr Jones’ friend. Later in the evening, they find out what happened to Dr Jones’ friend, something they didn’t suspect.
Trying New food
Year 4 had a lifetime opportunity to try unusual and exciting Egyptian food, trying unique homemade foods. They tried all new foods, they were made by fellow class mates. Able to try anything they wished to, like Egyptian bread and dates covered in honey.
Caitlin says “It was the best day ever and I rate it 10 out of 10.”
Hollie states that “Seeing what was inside of the tomb was my favourite thing.”
