We have been learning all about Ancient Egypt and today we learnt about the mummification process. We even had a go at mummifying some tomatoes in a similar way. Let’s see how these turn out…
We enjoyed story telling week during our guided reading sessions! We were inspired by Michael Rosen and performance poems to help us perform our own stories and poems. We had great fun and lots of giggles…. learning is fun!
We became historians as we went on an ‘information hunt’ to find out new information about Ancient Egypt!
3G had fun composing music using the notes that we have been learning and practicing over the last couple of weeks.
2M thoroughly enjoyed performing their class assembly this week to some of the children and their parents. Thank you to all of those wo came to enjoy the show!
Year 5 chefs hard at work preparing vegetables for their vegetarian samosas. You did a great job Year 5 – the finished samosas look fabulous and seemed to be a hit!
A big thank you to Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service for visiting Year 2 at Orchard today.
The children got to meet the Garston fire crew and learn lots about what they do as part of the emergency services. We were taught about all of the equipment that you can find on a fire engine, such as hoses, water pumps, thermal imaging cameras and power tools. The fire fighters were so friendly and answered all of our burning questions about the Great Fire of London and fire safety.
Remember to check your smoke alarms at home. If they are not working, the fire men said they will fit new ones for free!
In our indoor PE lessons we have been working on health related exercise. As part of this, we have been completing fitness circuits with a different focus each week. This week, we worked on improving our flexibility and were very pleased with our progress throughout the lesson.
As part of our theme learning, Year 2 designed and made their own chocolate and packaging.
We had so much fun taste testing products, exploring existing designs and creating our own. Yummy!
