We have been looking at the artist Matisse and at his different techniques he used to create pictures.
Ancient Egypt - How to mummify the dead
We had a very interesting lesson on how the Ancient Egyptians mummified their dead. The way they took out the brain was a lot of our favourite bits.
Emergency first aid training
Everyone in Year 4 learnt how to check if someone was breathing if they had been badly hurt and what to do if they weren't breathing whilst they waited for help to arrive.
Ancient Egypt - Canopic jars and reed boats
We learnt during the process of mummification they used canopic jars to store the organs they took out in. We made our own using clay and then painted them. We also looked at how they travelled up and down the River Nile using reed boats and we made our own of these as well.
South America - Molla Art
This type of art involves us cutting out the shape of an animal, then using that as a template on a different colour piece of paper but making it slightly larger. After repeating this and placing the papers on top of each other it will make a fantastic effect with the picture making it very colourful.
For remembrance day we made our own 3D poppies.
South America - Sun Gods
We made our own Sun Gods using clay. In South America these are very important to its people there
Science - Teeth
We investigated our own teeth. We looked at the type of teeth we have, how much teeth we each have and how many adult and milk teeth we had.
Also we looked at what each type of tooth is used for when we eat.
Science - digestive system
We looked at our bodies and investigated where our food goes when we eat it, and the processes that happen inside our bodies to the food
Rochdale Pioneers - Making thaumatropes
We made these by drawing to designs (eg man and a jail) on separate cirlces of paper. We then stuck them back to back and put string on it's side. Then when we spun the paper it made the illusion that the man was in the jail.
