Hey Emeralds, I can’t wait to see you all tomorrow (Thursday 4th March) at 1.30pm for PE with Vinnie. I will greet you tomorrow and it will be so lovely to see you all again. In the meantime here are some funny memes. I have REALLY missed you. Mrs N-G x
Hi Emeralds, wasn’t the snow beautiful on Sunday. Please send in your photos of what you got up to and I will add to this album. TA has sent in these brilliant ones of him snowboarding – he looks like a natural doesn’t he! I went for a lovely snowy walk, but forgot to take any photos! PT made some super snowmen. I look forward to seeing your pics, send them to email@example.com
I hope you enjoy reading KL’s work and looking at her beautiful artwork as much as I did, it really made my day receiving her work, so please send in what ever you have done.
In Ancient Egypt the internal organs were removed in the mummification process and placed in canopic jars, ready for the afterlife. The children designed and made their own versions using clay. Don’t they look brilliant, the detail on some of the faces is incredible.
In literacy we have been using modal verbs to persuade: would, could, should, will, won’t, must, mustn’t etc. We have been writing arguments for and against entering an ancient Egyptian tomb. The children then held a debate and they were BRILLIANT, amazing vocabulary and excellent arguments for and against.
Look at these wonderful creations. The children researched Egyptian symbols and their meaning, then they glued string to card, covered in foil and used acrylic paint over the top.
Please keep emailing me examples of your work, it’s lovely to see what you’re doing and it makes me smile. Here are some pics from IN showing her maths work, as well as her work on endangered animals. I miss you chaps and I don’t get many pics :( so please get emailing!
Did you hear our very own EW on 6Music last Thursday asking Professor Brain Cox about wormholes in space? EW came across so well on national radio, the presenter even commented on how assured he was. Lovely to hear your voice EW.
In art we have been creating mixed media Egyptians pharaohs. The children were photographed side on, then they created their own crown or headdress, based on research. They added a colour wash background and designed their own cartouche with their name written in hieroglyphs.
This week the children have been mummifying oranges. Ask your child what the process is and what they had to do. The oranges have been wrapped in bandages and will be regularly checked. We will keep you posted.
Hi Emeralds, we are really looking forward to seeing your lovely faces tomorrow morning! Most of you haven’t been to school for 6 months, but try not to worry, it will be just fine. See you tomorrow at 8.45am by the car park slope. Mrs N-G, Mrs D-B & Mrs Howard
In PE we are learning Egyptian style dance. The children have learnt a variety of moves are working together to create a routine. ‘You had to keep your body straight, extend your arms and keep your feet flat.’ Scarlett.
‘It was difficult but fun.’ Bella.
‘I really liked their style of dancing.’ Loretta.
‘We worked well as a team.’ Hayden
As parents aren’t able to come into the classroom this parent’s evening here are some photos of what we have been doing. Drama – acting out being Howard Carter and finding the tomb. Diary writing – as if we were an archaeologist, DT -making our own canopic jars out of clay and researching Ancient Egyptian gods.
Have a look at KL’s lovely project work on the Northern Lights. Beautiful writing and gorgeous artwork, it made my day receiving this! If anyone else has project work please email in.
See you tomorrow Emeralds!
