 Egyptian Topic Day

 

Professor McGinty and his amazing time travelling machine came to visit us this half term. He brought  some incredible artefacts for us to handle including a cat mummy, papyrus, a sarcophagus, scarab beetles and canopic jars. We also made Saboob — an Egyptian flat bread, papyrus and clay shabti dolls. We all looked wonderful in our Egyptian costumes.

 Egyptian Topic Day

In maths we used our problem solving skills to make pyramids and tried to spot and predict patterns. We learned that Egyptians wrote on hieroglyphs and had a go at writing our own names. For fun we used our teamwork skills to make the best mummy using toilet roll! In the afternoon we were archaeologist, digging up Ancient Egyptian artefacts and making deductions abut what they might be.  We also used our art and observation skills to make collars in the style of those worn by wealthy Ancient Egyptians.

Author Visit to Stratford Library

Author Visit to Stratford Library  1
We visited the library to meet Narinder Dhami, who inspired the children with her exciting talk about being an author. Lots of the children were then inspired to write their own stories.  The children also took part in a library treasure hunt.

Brandon Marsh Trip 

 

We had a fantastic day today at Brandon Marsh in the sunshine. We took part in pond dipping, bird watching, mini beast hunting and learnt all about food chains. All the children thoroughly enjoyed it and behaved impeccably and were great ambassadors for Bridgetown Primary School.  We are looking forward to seeing their homework where they will create posters to promote Brandon Marsh.
