Term 6

Art - Art Gallery 

This week, we welcomed parents to come in and look at the amazing art work that we have done over this year. Then the children retrieved the learning from this year and taught their parents how to make a photo with light and dark using acrylic paints.


History - Tutankhamen

What was discovered in Tutankhamun’s tomb? That was the question we wanted to know. As a hook into Howard Carter’s discovery, we entered a tomb to investigate what we saw. However, we only had 20 seconds per person before the gases affected our bodies too much. 

Maths - Identifying Triangles

This term, we have continued our learning on geometry. This week, our focus was on triangles and how they have different properties. We know there is an equilateral triangle, isosceles triangle, scalene triangle and a right angle triangle (right angle triangles can also be scalene or isosceles triangles). Here we are looking at sorting triangles from their properties.


History - Artefact box from The Collection

We were very lucky to have the artefact box from The Collection this week to look at examples of Egyptian artefacts. We started our learning by only having a small section of a photo of an artefact and predicting what the artefact was by completing the drawing. Then, we spoke about how archaeologists have key questions they must answer to discover the purpose of the artefact, so we placed some of the artefacts into a grid and became archaeologists. We loved investigating and furthering our knowledge of the Egyptians. 

Science - classifying plants

This term in Science, we are focusing on Living Things and Their Habitats. Here we are classifying plants that we have found in our school grounds. Then, we went back to the classroom and started to classify the plants and leaves so we can be more specific with our findings. 

DT - food packaging

This term, we are looking at food. We will be designing our own healthy snack bar. Here we are looking at packaging that are on the high street investigating the ingredients and what is on the packaging. 

Poetry Slam 2022

This term in English, we kicked started our. English off with a poetry slam. Everyone in the school were given a poem to learn, perform in class and then the chosen group were then asked to perform in the final. Our poem we were given was titled ‘Mummy’ which focused on the mummification process of Egyptian pharaohs. The children had great fun performing the poem and many of us did not need the poem in front of us when we were performing it as we had learnt it all. 



French - Breakfast

This term in French, we are focusing on naming items we would eat in French. From this, we are going to articulate and write sentences about which item we would like in French.


YMCA - Rock Climbing, Parkour and STEM Activity - Sports Trip

What an amazing day we have had! We all loved our Sports Trip at YMCA in Lincolnshire where we tried rock climbing, parkour and a STEM activity. It pushed our resilience and our teamwork skills as we tackled these new challenges. All the children had a great time and we would love to go back.



Walsingham - Pilgrimage

Today, we went on our very own Pilgrimage to Walsingham Shrine. Before lunch, we were medieval pilgrims and after lunch, we were modern day pilgrims. We walked around the abbe6band paid our respects when the bells rang out. Once in the shrine, we all lit a candle and said a prayer and reflected. It truly was an amazing, spiritual day!
