Welcome to year 3-4
Our learning this half term will be aiming to answer the question:
What were some of the significant achievements for Ancient Egyptians and what did it help them achieve?
In English this half term, we will be reading Marcy and the Riddle of the Sphinx by Joe Todd Stanton. We will be working on some story writing, thinking about how we can improve our setting and character description before developing our skills in writing dialogue. We will also be writing some instructional texts on 'How to Make a Mummy'!

WHAT HAVE WE BEEN LEARNING?
LAst half term, Year 3/4 have really enjoyed learning all about what makes up our planet and how natural disaster such as volcanoes and earthquakes occur. We made our own models of Earth using different coloured custards, biscuit crumbs and rice to show the different layers.
We also learnt lots about how to keep our bodies and teeth healthy in PSHE and why this is important. Children completed food group plates at home to help them identify all of the different food groups they eat!
