Lunch Time Recorder club
For the past 5 weeks, we have been learning to play the recorder.
We can read and play the notes ‘B’, ‘A’ and ‘G’.
Well done everyone!
We made bread in the class. We went into groups of 5 and worked as a team delegating the different activities. We worked really well together.
Then we let our bread rise and then made our different shapes.
We made our Shadufs today. The Egyptians used shadufs to collect water for their crops.
We went outside and collected our equipment. Then we came inside and worked together in pairs,
Here we are looking for our equipment.
Here are some pictures of our French day,
We played some different board games to recap our French knowledge. Outside, we painted our pictures in the style of Monet, Then we played Boules, we were very good at this.
After, we made clay fish bowls in the style of Henry Matisse, used pastels to draw the pictures and also finished off out Monet paintings.
At lunch we ate lots of French food. We took our own chocolate chip brioches home too.
A visit from Mr Egypt
An actual Egyptologist came to visit us called Mr Egypt.
He told us many things about the Egyptians and let us handle 3000 year old artefacts. We were able to eat Egyptian food and dance like Egyptians. We learned about hieroglyphics and were able to crack some secret codes. We did a 'mummy wrapping' competition and listened to Mr Egypt's inspirational story of how he got to hold the death mask of Tutankhamun.
During English, we have been using possessive apostrophes. Here is a link to a song about possessive apostrophes.
Here we are painting our Monet pictures.
Here are some photos from our school trip to Castleshaw Centre. We had a great time learning about Rivers, the water cycle and pond habitats.
We have been writing poems about water in English. Here are a few of them.
These are some pictures of us drawing our fruit in Art.
Here we are playing our instruments in music.
Here we are painting our colour wheels.
