  • Year 3 Egyptian Day

    Year 3 Egyptian Day
    11th February 2019

    Year 3 held an Egyptian Day to finish our topic for this term. We were lucky to have a brilliant workshop, where we practised writing hieroglyphics with a reed and ink, and looked at replica artefacts. We also wrapped ourselves up in bandages like mummies, and learnt about how the Egyptians would have transported huge blocks of stone. The children were all brilliant and really showed off how much they have learnt this term! Read more

    There is a fantastic project going on in Enrichment – a Stegosaurus is growing in the Forest School den! All children will be involved in building her; made from black piping and cardboard tubes and stuffed with plastic bags filled with recycled materials (and a very special red heart), she is slowly taking shape. The children are at the papier-mâché stage and are enjoying gluing on paper strips. She will eventually be covered in material, painted and varnished and be displayed in the playground. She is going to be magnificent! Read more
