For our final Ancient Egypt lesson, we decided to create our own mummies using limited resources. Take a look at our designers, creators and our fantastic mummies.
Today in Art, we took our lesson outside. As we are focusing on Ancient Egyptian death masks, we used the school grounds to identify different patterns. We started in the Key Stage 2 playground, then made our way to the Key Stage 1 area. On our travels, we found some amazing patterns which could be used when designing our very own masks. Take a look at some of the patterns below, can you find them next time you're in the playground?
This half term, Mr Eccles has been taking 3S outside every Wednesday morning for some forest school fun. During this time, we have been learning the names of different knots, how to tie them (some children can do this with their eyes closed) and even how to make a fire. We have been putting our very own Wilbraham Forest School area to good use, completing Maths activities, as well as building our problem solving skills.
Our Geography topic this half term is called 'Saving The World.' We have looked into a variety of natural disasters such as, tsunamis, volcanoes, earthquakes and tornadoes. As we had identified what causes a volcano, we mixed our Geography lesson with some Science and created our very own exploding volcanoes. We followed instructions step by step, and watched the 'lava' flow.
This week, 3S decided to combine our History and DT lessons. We designed our own Egyptian amulets, then using salt dough, we brought our designs to life.
We had a great time molding and shaping our dough, using real Egyptian amulets as inspiration. When they had dried and were painted, we had some amazing Egyptian artifacts.
