Miss Hall - Year 3/4
AUTUMN TERM 2018
This term in topic we have been learning all about Ancient Egypt. We learnt about the Ancient Egyptians mummification ritual and using this we mummified a tomato. First, we made a hole. Then, we scooped out all the insides. Next, we cleaned the inside and the outside. Finally, we stuffed it with Natrox (a mixture of salt and bicarbonate soda) and left it in a container. We are excited to see what happens after a few days!
Topics this term
Extreme Earth and World War 2
This term we have been very busy in year 3 and 4. Our topic before half term was Extreme Earth. We learnt all about the Earth and how natural disasters occur. We were able to link art to our topic and we made volcanoes using Modroc.
This half term our topic is World War 2. So far we have learnt all about the key events and why some of them were turning points for allied troops in the war. After our family assembly we designed and painted propaganda posters with our parents. Towards the end of the term we will be making our own Anderson Shelter out of shoe boxes. This topic has allowed us to get very creative at home. We have made gas masks and shelters with our parents.
