Year 4 are taught by Mrs Abbott (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday), and Mrs Davies (Thursday, Friday) and Mr Murray is our Teaching Assistant.
Here, at Lunsford Primary School, we strongly believe that homework is an important part of a child's development. Learning is done in and out of the classroom and helps to build a child's thinking and memory skills and also aids to build a positive work ethic.

Autumn 1 - 2017
This term we are learning about Ancient Egypt. When someone died in Ancient Egypt, their body would have been preserved by being mummified. This meant that the soul would have somewhere to return to after death. A death mask was created so that the soul would recognise its body, and return to it safely. Death masks were also believed to help to guard a dead person from evil spirits in the afterlife.
