Today, Year 4 ventured back in Ancient Egypt to make papyrus paper. It was very messy and very fun! They soaked strips of paper into a mixture of flour and tea, then wiped off the excess before laying it in a criss-cross pattern.
Year 4 had a very special visit today from Lim who spoke to the children about jobs within the church, the priest’s role and his own journey to becoming a priest. The children were extremely attentive and Lim was very engaging and answered their questions so that they could understand.
What an exciting start to our day!
4E have been using their homework to brainstorm what they know about Eyam, Derbyshire. They discussed the facts they found and learnt more from each other. After this, they recorded the facts learnt about Hamelin over the past half term, as they have been using ‘The Pied Piper of Hamelin’ as their class book. Tomorrow, they will compare the two places using our geography and history knowledge.
Year 4 had a fantastic time at the Liberal Synagogue in Nottingham city centre this morning. We listened carefully to Norman and impressed him with what we already knew. Whilst one class went downstairs to write the Mezzuzah prayer in Hebrew, the other class stayed upstairs and explored the synagogue and some Jewish artefacts. We got to try on Tallits and Kippurs and even use a Yad to discover how the Torah is read.
4E used the ‘Tell me more’ technique to learn some facts about The Torah and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs in preparation for our visit to the synagogue tomorrow. We have some questions we’d like to find the answers and some facts to impress our guides!
