Ancient Egypt in Year 4
In Year 4 we have started our new writing unit on playscripts and engaged enthusiastically in our experience day by taking a virtual tour of the setting of our playscript and performing the script to bring it to life. We are looking forward to developing our playscript writing skills and applying this to our own creations.
We have had great fun exploring how sound is made and carried out investigations using cup and string telephones to see how the length and tension of the string affected the sound heard.
We have enjoyed learning more about Ancient Egypt including how hieroglyphs were used in communication and applied this knowledge by creating our own cartouches. We have been learning about Ancient Egyptian art and will be combining learning about the features and techniques to create our own Ancient Egyptian scrolls.
