There have been some strange goings on at Tanners Wood this week. A mysterious UFO was spotted hovering above the KS2 playground early last Thursday morning. Since then year 3 have become news reporters and begun to further investigate the event. Shortly after, they discovered a strange green egg in the grounds of the KS1 playground. The egg was empty, but the investigations continue…
We had fun creating our own weather reports for Reykjavik and Abbots Langley.
Today year 3 became Egyptians for the day and discovered lots of interesting facts about Ancient Egypt. We even met some famous Egyptian Gods and successfully lifted the curse of the tomb.
We became Egyptians for the day and relocated to the River Nile.
We began with looking at where Egyptian times sat on the timeline.
Throughout the day we met some interesting characters. Workers who would work close to the river. Pharaohs- who were the monarchs of ancient Egyptians and many more.
We played Egyptian style Tug of War. Jazmin was the winner! Hurrah for Jazmin.
We learnt about how the Egyptians named their sons and daughters.
There was a clear hierarchy in Egyptian times. The Pharaoh at the top of the pyramid and the slaves were at the bottom.
We have learnt so much about Egyptian times, but we will ever shake the curse?
I just can’t stop dancing!
It was windy, but we went outside! Today in geography, Oak class used co-ordinates to plot human and physical features of Whitby in Tanners Wood. They also created their own human distance system and measured how many times we could go around the daily mile track before we reached Whitby, well done Oak!
Well done to Juniper class who treated the rest of the school and parents and family members to their class assembly this morning, focussing on the Egyptians. The children did a wonderful job – thank you for all of your hard work!
One partner gave the instructions and the other person acted out the steps to make a fruit kebab. We drafted our instructions using time words and interesting verbs.
On Monday, Juniper class were lucky enough to be visited by Healthy Heroes, who spoke to us about the importance of keeping both our bodies and brains healthy. We completed lots of fun and thought-provoking activities and even got to take part in a dance to keep us active!
We loved looking at out baby photos. Some of us were recognisable from our baby photos. Some of us were not.
