The daffodils have arrived and children are sowing more seeds and can't wait to see the plants grow!

On Thursday 25th Year 3 enjoyed a fantastic and busy Egyptian Day. We wore Ancient Egyptian costumes and immersed ourselves in learning about this fascinating historical period. Year 3 learned Egyptian dancing; completed Egyptian measuring with a 'Royal Cubit'; saw some Egyptian artefacts; answered research questions from museum fact boards and actually saw a body being mummified! We have really enjoyed our topic on Ancient Egyptians and loved experiencing all of our learning coming to life (or death...).
In Year 2 we have had a busy week spending money, making prints in Art and exploring circuits in Science.
Art and Toys
While the beginning of the term was challenging, it has been so wonderful having the children back with us and we would like to congratulate them once again, for how well they have managed not only time away from school, but their return to it.
This week we have linked our learning to the new season of Spring, as well as the Easter story and lots of lovely easter activities. We have gone over coin recognition and their understanding that coins are worth different amounts. We have also focused on doubling to 20. We made doubling aliens and looked at lots of different areas of space travel. We also had a visit from Wonder Dome which was hugely enjoyable. We learned the ‘er’ sound as well as going over all previous taught sounds.
Our Summer term topic will be ‘Once Upon a Time.’ Please encourage your children to familiarise themselves with traditional stories and fairy tales. These are available as stories, videos or books online, and I am sure you have a range of these books at home too.
It’s going to be Magical!
Easter in Action!
