Our topic is...     

Let's travel back 5,000 years to the dusty realms of Ancient Egypt.

 

 

 

This fascinating culture has provided more for our modern day society  than you might be aware of. Do you use paper, make-up, locks and keys, and believe it or not, toothpaste? Then thank an Egyptian!

 

 

 

Now open the doorway to Ancient Egypt - who knows what treasures you will find?

 

 

 

 

 

 

What do you think will happen in this story?

Who do you think the main characters are?

Our FANTASTIC Year 3/4 Homework projects!

R.E. week

 

We enjoyed learning about the Trinity and the importance of the Gospel in telling the stories of Jesus.

 

The children loved making fidget spinners, showing the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in the Trinity.

 

We created a display of stained glass windows and stories from the Gospels.

 

 

R.E. displays in the hall

To celebrate Rememberance Day, Year 3 /4 made poppies for our corridor. The whole school contributed to this fantastic display.
