Ancient Egyptian Day
We had a really busy and exciting Egyptian Day to finish off our history topic. We started off the day with mummifying some apples – we will check up on these in another couple of weeks to see the results! We also did a scavenger hunt to crack the hieroglyphics code, made a beautiful Egyptian collar and praised the sun god Ra. A great day was had and everybody looked fantastic in their Egyptian costumes.
Our first aid course was a fantastic opportunity. We learned how to put someone in the recovery position and assess the situation using DRSABC. It was a very valuable and informative afternoon. Year 5M asked some excellent questions and engaged really well with our visitor!
European Day of Languages
For European Day of Languages we celebrated the work of Spanish artist Picasso. We were inspired by his paintings to create portraits using his Cubism style. We then shared our fantastic Picasso portraits with 5D in our very own ‘art exhibition’.
Properties of Different Materials
We investigated the properties of different materials and learnt some new keywords to use when describing them. We worked with plastic, fabric, metal, stone and sponge to test their absorbency, permeability and translucency. We enjoyed our investigation and came to some excellent conclusions in our evaluations.
