What a wonderful World Book Day we had! Everyone looked great and there were some wonderful homemade costumes. It was lovely to see everyone back in school and having a great day, filled with fun and reading. Well done to Oscar for winning our first prize and Safwan for coming runner up.
Our collective worship is very important to us. We enjoy taking time to reflect and be mindful.We enjoy leading our own worships to our classmates. Our most recent worship has been all about Christmas. We enjoyed listening to The Nativity Story and a range of Christmas hymns. We have been thinking about the true meaning of Christmas and how Jesus became present.
Our science topic is animals including humans. We enjoyed learning all about the different bones in the human skeleton. We worked in groups to try and recreate our own skeletons by measuring bones. We were able to name some our key bones and could position some main bones correctly. It was great fun and we created some funny skeletons!
As part of our art work we have been looking at Indian art. We enjoyed using coloured sand to create these beautiful rangoli patterns. We kept our patterns simple and worked on symmetry when designing our rangoli patterns. They looked really bright and colourful.
We were very fortunate to spend the day with Amy from Nature Friendly Schools. We took part in lots of different activities and enjoyed being able to explore the outdoor environment. Our favourite activities were the scavenger hunt and roasting marshmallows!
As part of our work on Ancient Egypt, we investigated mummification. We created our own instructional leaflets about the process of mummification and used these to help us mummify oranges! It got very messy in our classroom as we followed each step. The first part was removing all the insides from the orange bodies. Then we washed and dried our orange bodies and covered them in salt. We will revisit these after 40 days.
Our art unit this term is looking at Indian art. The children have been working with Mrs Brookfield to explore a range of indian inspired art and patterns. We made these elephants using clay and then decorated them in an Indian style.
We are working really hard to make sure we are using capital letters, full stops, finger spaces and commas in all of our writing. We love using our disco lights to check our work. We always make sure we warm up first with a little dance!
At the beginning of our history unit, the ancient Egyptians, we looked at chronology. We explored different time periods and were able to work together to put the historic events and time periods in chronological order.
