We hope you had a wonderful holiday, and we are looking forward to having lots of fun with our learning this year!
We have had a fun start to our term already! We went on a hunt in the nature garden to find lots of interesting leaves to help us make backgrounds for our animal pictures. We were looking at Henri Rousseau’s paintings of the jungle, and created our animal pictures inspired by his! We will be showing our pictures at the Art Exhibition in October.
We had our school photos taken, and had fun pulling some funny poses!
This half term, we are looking at the Ancient Egyptians. We started off our topic by using Now>Press>Play to fully immerse ourself in the life of an Ancient Egyptian. We were chosen to be the scribe that accompanies Tutankhamun to the afterlife, and explored the inside of the pyramid.
We have been reading The Story of Tutankhamun by Patricia Cleveland-Peck, and have learnt lots about the boy prince already!
We had an amazing day at the British Museum. We saw some interesting paintings from Ancient Egyptian tombs, and thought about what we could learn from them. We looked at lots of artefacts that had been found – including some real mummies!
We have started learning how to play the recorders with Mr Clarke from the Southwark Music Service. We have learnt some fun new songs, such as ‘stripy cat’ and ‘B A Dood’!
Our artwork based on Henri Rousseau has been displayed in the hall! It was really fun to see our artwork framed and displayed.
The whole school got to take part in the Big Draw. We started by drawing out disco figures, by posing for our partners, and then we cut them out. When we got to the hall, we made patterns and marks using a variety of mediums, such as crayons and marker pens, and stuck our disco figures over the top!
We are really looking forward to seeing the full result of everyone’s hard work!
Today we had our RE day! We learnt lots of things about Judaism. We learnt about the story of Hanukkah and made dreidels and Hanukkah cards.
