October 16, 2018: 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.



October 8, 2018: 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".



October 1, 2018: 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.



September 10, 2018: The discoveries are about to begin
After settling into the school and their new classes, year 3 and 4 pupils in classes 3, 6 and 7 are about to start their topic focus for this half term. What will they discover about Ancient Egypt?



July 3, 2018: Sunny afternoon reading
It was such a lovely sunny afternoon today that we couldn't sit inside for DEAR, so we went outside and read in the open air.



June 27, 2018: Sherwood Pines
What a perfect day to take a trip into the forest and learn how to build shelters, light fires and go orienteering.



June 19, 2018: Creating the digestive system
What a messy afternoon in class 7. We wanted to see how the digestive system worked, and so we created our own version of it using a chocolate and banana sandwich, saliva (water), a stomach (plastic bag), stomach acid (vinegar) and intestines (tights). Harrison said it was "The best lesson ever", while Millie added "It was gross!"



June 16, 2018: Tooth Decay Eggsperiment!

June 7, 2018: Making Skeletons
