The suspense is…

This week we have been practising all the skills we have learnt to write our suspense stories of Howard Carter finding the tomb of Tutankhamun. We have been carefully placing adverbials, using description of  senses and our new skill of show not tell in to our story writing to build suspense about our main character. To finish on a cliff hanger, we have used rhetorical questions. Why wouldn’t we?

In maths we have finished our unit on mental calculation methods and have moved on to practising our written calculations including using the column method for addition. We will continue this into next week to include subtracting using the column method.

In history we created an interview with an Egyptian about their daily life. We asked questions about aspects of life including building, trade, farming, burying their dead, scribes  and leisure activities. We researched the answers to our questions and wrote a response as if we were the Egyptian.

In RE we have been learning about the significance of the 5Ks for Khalsa Sikhs. We learnt that Khalsa Sikhs wear the 5Ks to help them become closer to God. We are in the process of making posters to show the information we have found.

In PE we were playing mini hockey games, putting all our skills we have learnt into practice. We have also been further developing our team building skills.

We hope you all have an enjoyable weekend,

Year 4 Team
