Ancient Egypt Project Share

Well done to all of the children for a  fantastic project share. We were really impressed with everyone’s efforts! It was lovely to see so many adults in school supporting the children.

We’ve Got The Moves!

We have been working in groups within PE lessons to create our very own ‘wake and shake’ style dances. We voted on the music choices and then began creating our dances in groups; so far they are looking great and we have had the chance to perform and peer evaluate our routines.

Some of the images are blurred but it is clear that we are having a fantastic time!

Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphics

This week we have been reading and writing hieroglyphics as part of our study of Ancient Egypt. We looked at the origins of hieroglyphics, including the history of ‘The Rosetta Stone’, before we began using them within the classrooms.

Can you use the code to read our names or messages?

STEM WEEK – Floating and Sinking – FORCES

As part our work on stem week, we used inspiration from our 2nd class novel ‘Floodland’ by Marcus Sedgwick. We designed and made boats using our scientifc knowledge of materials and their properties as well as our knowledge of forces including upthrust. We delevoped our skills of working as part of a team and then tested our boats as a year group. We really enjoyed this destructive science experiment!

Next week we will be writing a scientific experiment based on our work this week.
