Ancient Egypt

The children are thoroughly enjoying our Ancient Egypt topic. Thank you for all the topic resources that have been coming in to school - it really makes the topic come alive. On Thursday, the children had great fun covering their Egyptian masks with modroc and they are looking fantastic already. The children will be painting these next week and we shall be posting pictures of the finished products then, so stay tuned.

Today has been full of investigations. This morning in maths the children were investigating 3D shapes and looking at different ways of sorting these into venn diagrams, using different criterion. There was lots of mathematical language being used and plenty of discussion about the many ways they might sort their shapes. Then in science the children have been very busy investigating forces. This afternoon, the children were outside in the sunshine investigating how balls travel on different surfaces, whilst playing the french game of boules!

Next week, the children will be focusing on how they can use descriptive language to create a particular mood or setting in their writing and we shall be investigating magnets in science. It is also our 'other faith' week in RE and shall be focusing on Judaism.

We look forward to another busy week!
