Year 3/4 - Voices in the Park
What an action packed start to the term year we’ve all had. We went straight into our learning with our new books ‘Voices in the Park’ by Anthoney Browne and ‘Tell Me a Dragon’ by Jackie Morris. Both stories are firing up our imaginations and inspiring our love language. In maths, everyone has been working on place value – focusing on thousands, hundreds, tens and ones. In the afternoons, children were designing and composing self portraits based on the work of the famous Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo. The children used natural media to create the background to their own ‘half self portrait’. We hope you enjoy looking at some of the examples.
Year 5/6 - Ancient Egyptians
This week we have been discovering facts about the past. In both reading and history we have been looking at the ancient Egyptians, the life and death of Tutankhamun and the discovery of his tomb by Howard Carter. The children had to decide what they thought some of the most important and influential finds within the tomb were.
