Warburtons visit Year 2

In Science and Design and Technology, we have been learning about eating healthily. We had a lady from Warburtons come and visit us. She told us about the history of Warburtons and then explained how to make a “rainbow sandwich”. Did you know that the more colours you have in your sandwich , the healthier the sandwich is? For example, yellow, red or green peppers, red tomatoes, green cucumber, yellow sweetcorn and pink tuna.

   

They look good enough to eat!

 

A card for ‘Someone Special’

Year 3 – Diwali

Firstly we would like to wish anyone who celebrates, a Happy Diwali!

In Year 3 our topic in Religious Education is Hindu Festivals.

We have started by looking at the Festival of Diwali as it was on the 7th November.

Diwali lasts for 5 days and is the Festival of Light.

As part of our RE lesson we designed and began to make some Diva lamps.We have used clay and different tools to follow our paper designs.

We are looking forward to painting them once the clay has dried. Keep checking back to see our finished products.

Year 3 Art Day

Today in Year 3 we had our first Art day.

We focused on mixing colours with a variety of materials and the outcomes have been fantastic.

We have drawn and painted Stonehenge and even made it out of biscuits – yummy!

We’ve had a lovely day and learnt lots about Art.

Stone Age Shelters

This week we have been looking at Stone Age shelters, from different times.

We enjoyed comparing them to our homes and also started to create our own in DT.

Here are some pictures of our shelters (in progress)

Making Matzoh in Year 4

Today Year 4 made some Matzoh bread in RE as they were learning about the Jewish festival called Passover or Pesach. This festival commemorates the Exodus (Moses leading the Jewish people out of Egypt).
The ingredients needed to make this flat, unleavened bread are olive oil, flour, water and salt.
The children enjoyed making and eating this bread with Mrs Rashid.
Well done to everyone involved.

Year 4’s Mummy

Over the past few weeks, we have been learning about the mummification process used in Ancient Egypt so we have mummified a banana!

The children had fun pretending the banana was an actual body. First, they inserted a metal rod into the nose, trying to liquify the brain in order to remove it. Then, they performed an incision on the left hand side of the banana to remove the organs. After that, they rubbed the inside and outside of the banana with salt. Next, they mummified it, wrapping it up with bandages. Finally, they placed the mummified banana into a sarcophagus. Every Friday, we have been checking changes to observe the different stages of decay.

Here are some of the photos of this experiment.
