Spring Term 2018
This term we will all be Walking Like Egyptians with our topic all about the Ancient Egyptians!
Wise Owls went to Manchester Museum, we had a great time meeting Stan the T-Rex and Asru the Mummy. We were even lucky enough to handle some real Ancient Egyptian artefacts.
We started with a mini topic on water and we had a visitor from Richard who works for Severn Trent Water. He told us lots of fascinating facts about the water cycle and we played a game to find out how we could all save water at home and at school.
This half term our topic is The Super Humans and we have been finding out about life in Ancient Greece. We have found out that they introduced democracy to the world and that life in the cities of Sparta and Athens were very different.
Design and Technology
This week we have started our Design and Technology unit of structures. We looked at the features of the Parthenon and then tried to build our own Greek temples using multi-link. We tested the strength of our designs with kg weights. Some of us were so confident in our designs that we used even more heavy things to prove to the others how good they were. Pride engulfed our classroom!
We found building a paper Parthenon much more difficult!
The whole school was involved in creating a border for our school motto “Working Together In God’s Love For The Benefit Of All” which is on display in the hall. Clever Cats and Wise Owls made joined people and dressed them using a variety of materials. The children in Busy Bees made hand prints.
Wise Owls made poppies for Remembrance day. We used PVA glue and squares of tissue paper on plastic wallets. When the glue was dry we peeled them off and they look really effective on the windows.
We have been learning about the human body in science including the skeleton. We used art straws to make our own skeletons. We tried really hard to see where all the bones were.
The children (and parents) all worked really hard on their Medusa homework when they were asked to make a snake for Medusa’s hair.
