Heathrow Primary School

YEAR 4

In English, we studied ‘The Prince of Egypt’ to learn about the story of Moses’ journey to the promised land. By linking film and book, the children used ‘From Screen to Page’- a project that uses all aspects of cine-literacy - to retell part of the story. They had to think carefully about the use of language to create suspense, tension and atmosphere, and its effect on the reader.

 

We were treated to Rainbow Theatre’s immersive theatre production, which dramatised the thrilling and fascinating story of Moses and his fight with Pharaoh. The children thoroughly enjoyed teleporting themselves back in time to bring the story of Moses to life, to gain a better knowledge of Egyptian culture and history.  

 

The children are currently studying persuasive writing linking it to advertising. By the end of this unit of work, they would have created an advert for television around our topic Ancient Egypt! We then look forward to writing some Christmas poetry!
