Stone Age homes

We designed and then created a home or shelter from the Stone Age times.
We used materials like clay, sticks and stones, and we had to carefully think about how to make the home strong.
All the class loved making their homes, even if we did get a bit messy!

Egyptian Day

Egyptian Day - December 2017

Here we are making papyrus paper using strips of brown paper laid horizontally and vertically and secured with glue and water. These looked brilliant when they dried out.

We worked together to make Egyptian flatbreads using flour, yeast, salt, olive oil and honey. We had to follow the instructions ourselves and weigh out the ingredients before following the method to make the bread. We let it rise for 2 hours before shaping into rolls and baking.

We carried out some pyramid maths activities using the addition and subtraction skills that we have been using in class.

We tasted  a variety of Egyptian snacks including dried dates, figs and sultanas, grapes, pomegranate seeds and our delicious flatbread.

We had a brilliant day - thank you to all of you who volunteered to help and for helping your children look so brilliant in their costumes.

Egyptian masks

We all designed and then painted an Egyptian burial mask, just like Tutankhamun had on when his mummy was discovered in Egypt.

Looking very scary Mulberry Class!!

Christmas dinner 2017

We all had fun today having our Christmas dinner. We made hats for the occasion and each had a cracker to pull.
