Year 4 visit to the World Museum

 

On the 14th of November, we visited the World Museum to learn more about the Ancient Egyptians. We met a real-life archaeologist, much to the delight of the children! They were thrilled to be able to handle ancient Egyptian artefacts and the archaeologist was most complimentary about our children.

 

Following that session, we spent time examining other exhibits from all four corners of the world and the children had the opportunity to try on costumes.

 

After lunch, it was time to "Meet the Mummy!" Three of the children dressed up and assisted in the removal of the vital organs, before the whole class helped to bandage the body. This was met with several fits of giggles, as well as quite a few "yucks!" It was a good time had by all!

Shape, space and measure

 

Looking forward to being back at school - hope you've all had a lovely break smiley

 

For Shape, Space and Measure this term we will be learning about perimeter and converting units.

 

Challenge: Can you learn these measurement conversions that will help you in Maths?

1 kilometre (km) = 1000 metres (m)

1 metre (m) = 100 centimetres (cm)

1 centimetre (cm) = 10 millimetres (mm)

Disabled artists week

 

This week we have been learning about the challenges disabled artists face. In Year 4 we have focused on the foot and mouth artist, Peter Longstaff. Unfortunately, Peter was born without arms due to his mother being treated with a medicine called thalidomide during her pregnancy. However, Peter has never let it hold him back and uses his right foot as we would use our right hand (or left if you are left-handed!). In fact, for twenty years he was a pig farmer, doing all the jobs required using his feet, including driving a tractor! When pig farming became more financially difficult, he left the career and turned to his hobby of art, finding that he was actually really talented. He now works for the MFPA (the UK Mouth and Foot Painting Artists) designing Christmas cards. He also produces lots of pieces of art focusing on nature, as he loves the beauty of nature. It is this focus which we have used in our paintings, first attempting to paint the inside of a flower outline using our mouths to control the paintbrush. Then we sketched our own flowers and painted them using our hands, a task all of the children found much easier than the first one! See below for pictures of some of the art we produced.
