Here is the Year 4 team! From left to right: Mr. Calloway, Mr. Burtonshaw, Mrs. Wright, Miss Thomas, Mrs. Hibbitt, Miss Trott, and Miss Hardisty – Mr. Evans will be teaching P.E this year.

Welcome to Year 4! This term our project is called ‘Where is my mummy?’ Throughout this project, we’ll be investigating how the ancient Egyptians lived, their gods, and we will also be building our very own sarcophagi! Also, we’ll be visiting the ancient Egyptian section of Bristol Museum, where there will be plenty of exhibits to explore. Our first unit of science is titled ‘sound’. There will be plenty of exciting experiments, investigations and tasks, where we will try and answer: how is sound created? How does sound travel? How can we hear sounds? These activities link in with Article 29 of our Rights Respecting School (RRS) rights, which states that ‘your education should help you use and develop your talents and abilities.’
