What are we learning?
Our Topic is 'Ancient Egyptians' and we have had so much fun learning about the different beliefs and way of life of people in Ancient Egypt. We've had a go at mummifying our friends, made some canopic jars to put internal organs into, learnt their creation story, built our own pyramids and had ago at writing our names in hieroglyphics. We've also been busy learning how to use PowerPoint and have made some Ancient Egypt PowerPoints complete with animations and pictures inserted from the internet.
During Arts week we focused on the painting 'Water Lily Pond' by Monet. We had a go at making our own version using watercolour paints and a wax resist technique for the bridge. We also made our own 3D water lily which had many different components. Finally, we had a go at some tile printing using polystyrene tiles which we decorated with our own geometric designs. We found the more simple the design, the more effective they eventually looked!
The children put on a fantastic Class Assembly to show off all their learning this term! If you managed to make it, then thank you very much for coming. If you were unable to come, then here are some pictures for you to enjoy!
