Year 3 Ancient Egyptians

Today, Year 3 have learned just how gruesome the Ancient Egyptians were. They have had the opportunity to experience the process of mummification and created their own mummified tomatoes.

The children will be observing what happens to the tomatoes over the coming weeks to gain a better understanding of the mummification process.

Year 6 Victorian WOW Day

Year 6 have had a fabulous WOW day today immersing themselves in the Victorian era. The children blew us away with the effort that had gone into their Victorian costumes. We had suffragettes, chimney sweeps, maids, children from the work house and even masters and some ladies!

Throughout the day, the children completed a range of activities to develop their understanding of this very important time in British history. They created Queen Victoria pictures made up of facts about the time and traditional silhouette portraits. To end the day, the children watched a Hobgoblin performance of Workhouse Boy.

Awesome Egyptians

Yesterday and today, Year 5 took part in their Wow day for the new topic: Awesome Egyptians. Children had the opportunity to watch the theatrical production of ‘The Curse of the Mummy’ and created 3D Egyptian artefacts.

All the children loved learning about the process of mummification and how gruesome the Egyptians were. They then had the opportunity to see the mummification process in real life and created their own mummified tomatoes. We will be observing what happens to the tomatoes next week.

Britain Since 1940

In 1940, a quarter of homes had no electricity and many did not have a telephone. The average weekly wage was approximately £3. It is much more now!

Many new towns were created in 1946.

The National Health Service (NHS) was set up in 1948.

Sainsburys opened their first supermarket in 1950.

1951 – The Festival of Britain was held.

In 1955, the commercial television began. This was followed by the colour television in 1967.
