In Year 4 this term we have been learning about the Ancient Egyptians. On Tuesday, we went to Bolton Museum to learn even more and Millie at the museum was very impressed with our knowledge. We explored around the Egyptian gallery and took part in a workshop. During the workshop, we learnt the link between Bolton and Egypt, we created a human timeline, we learnt about mummification and even saw some real mummies! We also pretended one of the children were a mummy and we had to sort the organs into the correct canopic jar.
Whist we were there, we were lucky enough to have a look around the art gallery, an aquarium and we learnt about the history of Bolton. We had a fantastic day!!

We were really lucky when Emily, a student at UCLAN, came to demonstrate the digestive system to us as part of her dissertation. This was a great recap from our learning in Year 3 and 4. She taught us how the food we eat travels through our body, is used for energy and then how we poop out the waste! It was pretty gross but great fun!

Our Egyptian museum box arrived and it was very exciting! There were lots of Egyptian artefacts inside so we became historian detectives and asked questions about the artefacts and then found out information about them.

We have been learning about The Great Fire of London. We have learnt about where the fire started, how it spread and the impact this had on people's lives. Children have made their own London houses and bakeries and we have put them together and re-enacted the fire of London scene by setting them alight to show what happened.

As part of our Harvest unit, we tasted some foods that have been harvested in our local area and around the world. We talked about how the fruits and vegetables tasted and discussed how they had been harvested, whether this be by hand or machines.

Poet Paul Cookson came to visit our school in October. We loved listening to his poems and got to join in performing some. He showed us how he uses illustrations to enhance his poems and how he uses the music by playing his ukelele. We had great fun and even got to write a class poem about animals.

We have had great fun learning all about Diwali. We made Diva lamps, created rangoli patterns using rotation and made lots of delicious food. This was then collected from all around school to create a display like they do at the temple. In our RE lessons we are considering the question "Is there one journey or many?" where we are learning about the Hindu beliefs around reincarnation, the cycle of life and the Samskaras.

The Wildlife Trust visited last week. We joined them in our environmental area to learn more about learning outdoors.
We took part in a lesson about World War 2. We talked about the sounds and smells there would have been during the bombing, how we would have felt as a fighter pilot taking part in raids and we made tiny bomb shelters.

We were split into groups along with children from other local schools and took part in a variety of lessons including: Art, Cookery, Science, R.E., History, Football, Netball and Trampolining.

Our pupils in KS1 were invited to receive the Count and Countess of Wessex, Edward and Sophie. It was delightful to welcome them to Preston Market and to Miller Park. The Royal couple were very generous with their time and they were attentive in talking to the children. We were very grateful for the opportunity to be present at the celebration of the 20th year of the 2002 Jubilee at which Preston was named as a city. Children were given flags and goody bags containing a drink and a snack. They were very welcoming of our special visitors and the sun shone for us on the day.
