Welcome to 4A's page!
This week we came together as a school to celebrate Harvest Festival. I would like to begin by saying a huge thank you to everyone who donated something to our 4A hamper. Each year group participated in the celebration by either performing a poem or singing a song. We worked alongside 4R to perform our own song created by the pupils themselves. Please find the lyrics below if you would like to sing at home :)
We have continued to learn more about the way in which Ancient Egyptians used to live. We looked at the video below to learn about the typical day of an Ancient Egyptian child and used this and our own research to create a diary entry as part of our cross curricular writing.
This week we had a visitor from the NSPCC come to talk to us in our assembly. They discussed what the charity is and does and discussed ways in which could support them. Over the next couple of weeks, we will be taking part in a sponsored challenge. 4A have decided to carry out a dance tournament in our session. Look out for our sponser forms which will be coming home shortly and we would appreciate any donations no matter how big or small.
This week we took part in our first Strings lesson. We were introduced to each of the instruments and learnt what each string is called and how to pluck them. In a couple of weeks we will be allowed to take our instruments home. Watch this space!
What an exciting first week we have had! On Thursday, we started to look at our new topic Temples, Tombs and Treasures. We took part in a carousel of activities including, an archaeological dig for Ancient Egyptian treasures and we even turned Miss Allen's cupboard into an ancient tomb, complete with a life size mummy. All of this has really sparked our interest and we can't wait to find out more!
