Mystery in Lower School
Over the weekend, a tunnel appeared in the Lower School area.
We set the children off being detectives to investigate what happened in Lower School. Children had to search for clues and gather evidence to determine what catastrophe had happened. A number of children also interrogated several staff members who they believed were suspects.
Autumn Term Topic: Ancient Egypt
So far this term we have written questions that we want to know about ancient Egypt. By the end of the term we will be able to answer our questions.
Why were cats so important?
How did they go to the toilet?
How long did Tutankhamun live?
What did their houses look life?
The topic has included lots of art. We have made: mummified cats by paper weaving; collars which were worn by rich Egyptians; amulets out of salt dough and are starting to plan our own semi abstract compositions.
Ancient Egyptian Day September 2016
Congratulations to all the lower school children who make such a fantastic effort at dressing up. You all looked fabulous. Our first activity was to create a lucky amulet out of salt dough. Our designs included hieroglyphics or other lucky charms such as scarab beetles, ankh and cats. In the afternoon the children created their Egyptian collars and had a treat of ice cream and Egyptian Khoshaf sauce.
Pictures to follow.
