Year 5 are currently adding the final touches to their Canopic Jars. They have made these using a coiling technique alongside their own creativity!
Year 5 painted messages using Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs this afternoon. As well as mixing colours to gain the correct shade and tone, the symbols had to clearly represent the Ancient script.
A crime was committed in the Year 5 corridor this morning! Fear not, the year group are currently investigating who the culprit is who stole the cake…
Year 5 have been writing adventure stories based on their topics of Ancient Egypt. Here is an impressive paragraph from a pupil in 5AP:
Heaving with every ounce of strength in my bones, I rolled the sturdy rock aside. Dazzling light dawned through the ancient Egyptian monument. A grin widened across my face as I set foot within this extraordinary construction, erected thousands of years ago. Caution in every step, my heart raced with fear that slowly overwhelmed my soul. Groaning came from within the historic establishment. As I advanced attentively, I stared in wonder at the horror of the statues before me.
Year 5 used chalks skilfully to create images of the Northern Lights, using a variety of techniques.
There have been a lot of science experiments taking place this week. Year 3 are finding out what happens to flowers and plants when placed into coloured water whilst Year 5 have dissected tulips. In Year 6, the children have taken apart owl pellets in order to investigate the diet of owls. Great hands on learning!
