Pyramid Building

 

We designed pyramid structures and were told we were going to be given cuboids to complete the structure - Miss Ashby did not tell us they would be biscuits! We used our designs, discussed these with our group and experimented with the structures we had planned out. We were imitating Djoser's pyramid which was the first pyramid built in Egypt - otherwise known as the step pyramid. We then ate the biscuits! 

Clay Hieroglyphics

 

We made clay cartouches of Pharaoh's names in hieroglyphics. We had to use rolling pins to flatten the clay and then certain tools to engrave the letters the way the Egyptians would have written them. 

Eastbury Manor House Visit

 

We visited Eastbury Manor House as part of our IPC unit 'Different Places Similar Lives'.  We learnt about the Sisley family and how Eastbury Manor House has been relevant over the years. 

Children In Need 2019 

 

We dressed in tracksuits and sportswear to raise funds for Children in Need! 

Odd Sock Day

We wore odd socks to school to raise awareness of anti-bullying. We took part in various activities throughout the day to make us think about bullying and how to be a good friend. 

Bug Hotels

We made hotels for minibeasts to give them a nice warm habitat. They were then placed in our playground to create a suitable envrioment. 

 

 

Aspiration Wall

4A have posted their aspirations in Leys Aspiration Wall. We have some that want to be doctors, footballers and actors, some who want to be a princess and some that want to be on I'm a Celebrity! 

#HelloYellow was a fundraising and awareness day for a charity called Young Minds which is a charity to help young people with their mental health. 

Our visit to Beam Parklands

 

our first IPC topic is Land, Sea and Sky. We went to our local parkland to look at animals habitats, the local environment and how animals may be adapted to suit these environments.
