Year 3 and Year 4 are having a competition to find out who can grow the tallest bean plant. They will be able to take them home after the competition has finished and hopefully enjoy beans all summer!
The class have had a brilliant day on their trip to Weston Park Museum. During the trip, we got to embalm a body, make a shabti and even meet some Egyptian mummies!
We have created our own Egyptian masks. Mr Bailey has even put them on display outside of his office!
In topic, we have been designing and creating our very own masks. It’s been messy!
We created mummies fingers with hotdogs and almonds and placed them in bicarbonate of soda to recreate the Ancient Egyptian mummification process. We checked on them after a week and the smell wasn’t very nice at all. Check back next week to see if our experiment has worked.
In science, we have been learning all about light and dark. On Monday, we investigated how a shadow is is created.
Today, we had a visit from some gladiators. We interviewed them and asked them about what a typical day was like in the life of a gladiator.
