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.

Terrific Tremors

Year 4 had a wonderful Wow day immersing themselves in learning about their new topic, Tremors. The children created their own volcanoes using clay. Professor Southgate taught the children how to mix substances to create lava and there were many squeals of delight as the lava rose and poured over the sides of the volcano. The children also created explosive volcano paintings in the style of Nick Rowland. They learned how to use different techniques and colours to create the dramatic effect. What a fantastic Wow day!

Year 3 Wow Day

Year 3 thoroughly enjoyed their Wow day today, linked to their topic ‘Burps, Bottoms and Bile’. The highlight was decorating their own vests to show the digestive system and then creating ‘poo’ in the classroom!
