Can we accurately recreate a colour chart using just the three primary colours?
We have had an awesome first day back dressed as Tudors – researching King Henry, singing Tudor songs and dancing to Tudor music!
This afternoon, we wrote poems entitled recipe for the perfect Christmas or winter. We choose our own rhyming scheme and thought carefully about our vocabulary choices. We hope you will enjoy reading them as much as we enjoyed writing them.
We’re not happy about something but we can’t reveal why just yet until these complaint letters are finished!
Day one is well underway as the children master basic skills before heading out to the roads tomorrow.
Kitty and Joshua (Y6) have worked well together to create three 3D design projects for different purposes. Here is their alien design for a child’s birthday cake.
Last week, we went line graph crazy! We were trying to look at how they’re used and what information they often display. Don’t forget that this week’s homework is to plot a line graph showing your distance from home over time for a typical school day. Of course, your graph needs to be accurate and hand drawn…
This afternoon, we have been learning about the Ancient Egyptian diet. We discovered that the River Nile helped the Egyptians to grow their own crops and they wouldn’t have survived without it. Interestingly, beer and bread were extremely important in the Ancient Egyptian diet. Both beer and bread were eaten by everyone with every single meal! We had a go at baking our own Ancient Egyptian flat bread – it was delicious!
Over the past two days, Year 5 have been learning about Egyptian Nemes. Egyptian Nemes were a type of headwear worn by Pharaohs in Ancient Egyptian times.
Traditionally they were striped blue and gold and featured a serpent in the centre. We have been creating our own Nemes suitable to use at a children’s birthday party. Some of us chose to create very traditional Nemes and others decided to go not so traditional!
