Base 5 and the Ancient Egyptians

Some of the pictures show the children in Base 5 exploring different books based on our current topic: How much did the Ancient Egyptians achieve?

The children loved looking through our selection of topic books and finding new information about the Ancient Egyptians. They especially enjoyed the fold-out book that had a huge map of the river Nile!

Other pictures show some children’s art work. Children were using wire to create familiar Egyptian symbols such as a scarab beetle and The Eye of Horus. The children had to using joining, bending and shaping techniques to form the outline of the symbols.

Thank you Base 5 – it is really interesting to keep up with how much you are learning about the Ancient Egyptians and their way of life.

Outdoor Learning – Year One

In our outdoor learning this week we learned about Andy Goldsworthy and the amazing art that he does outdoors.

We hunted for the red leaves and made a Poppy with them to add to  the Remembrance Day poems we have been writing in English.

Thank you for sharing this with is Year One – it is really lovely.
