Masking the past

We had a really creative afternoon today as we created our own Egyptian Death Masks.

By the end the afternoon the children had almost finished their very own masks in the same style as Tutankhamun’s. 42EF61AD-A123-4127-B4E6-819056F5742C

Mummifying TutAnkh"Tom"un

Year 3 and 4 spent part of this afternoon learning how the Ancient Egyptians mummified their Pharaoh's. 

We mummified TutAnkhTomun (or Pharaoh 'Tom') in groups, learning about how the body had to be cleansed, then emptied into Canopic Jars, and then cleansed again before salt was packed around the body and it was left for forty days.

Janiah, in class 7 said "It was a little bit gross", but Noah added "It was fun".

Trojan Horses

Last week we learnt all about the Trojan War and why we should ‘Beware Of Greeks bearing gifts,’

We worked in teams to create our own Trojan Horses which had to:

  • hold 20 soldiers (Lego figures)
  • move
  • have a way for the soldiers to escape in the night
  • not look like a box of soldiers!

I think you can agree the children all met their success criteria and did really well to say they only had one day!

Jeans for Genes Day

Last Wednesday we took part in 'Jeans for Genes' day. Throughout the morning we placed loose change on a pair of jeans. It was brilliant to watch the transformation of the jeans and the generosity of everyone throughout the morning.  We raised £132.31, wow! Thank you to everyone who donated change.

Bringing the past to life

As the Year 3 and 4 children are currently learning about the Ancient Egyptians, we invited Partake into the school to let the children experience Egyptian artefacts, aromas and clothes, as well as taking part in a recreation of an Egyptian ceremony.

They seemed to really enjoy it, as you can see from the images in this slideshow.

We’ve had another lovely week in class 6. Meeting grandparents yesterday was a fantastic way for the children to show how proud they are of what they are achieving at school. Our focus in English this week has been writing a recount of when Howard Carter discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922. We had some examples read out in class yesterday and I think it is fair to say that I, our visitors and Mr Cullen were very impressed with what we heard. Great work everyone!

Spelling homework went out a little later this week so is not due in until Thursday next week.

Remember to bring school planners in on Monday so I can give out those reading raffle tokens.

Enjoy the lovely the weather this weekend.
