It has been lovely to walk around the school this week, to see all of the displays in our corridors being changed. These displays show some very high-quality examples of writing. Here is a picture of one of the display boards in the Year 4 corridor so everybody at home can see your wonderful work.
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.
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 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!
Well done to Seren for her fantastic drawing of a wolf as part of Year 3’s topic work last week. She has use the grid technique when copying the original picture to help her with making sure the scale of her drawing was correct. Keep up the hard work, Seren!
