November 5, 2018: A Mystery at Porchester
Year 3 and 4 were shown a local newspaper headline today at the start of their new topic, and it seems not only did some of the staff see mysterious objects at the weekend, but so did many of the children. We have discovered that there are still strange nuts, bolts and other items around the school and the children are collecting them to help us try and solve the mystery of where these could have come from.



October 30, 2018: Class 3 visit Ancient Egypt
What a half term we have had exploring Ancient Egypt in Class 3! Our weekly questions have taken us on quite a learning journey... First of all, we used atlases and the internet to research where Egypt is located and why the River Nile was so important to ancient Egyptians. We then investigated how artefacts can tell stories about the past. We had the chance to handle artefacts during our visit from Partake and we used the Rosetta Stone to translate messages into hieroglyphics. We considered how every day life would have been different to our lives now and acted out a day in the life of an ancient scribe using the 'now press play' headphones. We also mummified tomatoes, designed pyramids with hidden chambers, made death masks and used clay to sculpt canopic jars! Our topic work has led to some exceptional pieces of writing, including recounts from Howard Carter's perspective when he discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun, Pharaoh job descriptions and Egyptian Cinderella stories. We were even lucky enough to receive top tips for editing our work from our author in focus, Emma Carroll!



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?
