Year 4-5 Gold
Yr 3 – 5 enjoyed a visits to Lynewood forest to learn about the forest habitats. Although the weather was not so kind, the children loved being outside and getting wet and dirty! Everyone had the opportunity to build dens, make some beautiful natural art pieces and also enjoyed toasting marshmallows! The children also then helped with some jobs on the nearby farm; feeding the donkeys, collecting eggs and looking after Larry the pet lamb!
This is what the children said about their visit;
“I loved building the forts in the forest and I loved the view”
“I enjoyed making the dens and toasting marshmallows, I would like to go again!” Sophie
” I loved all of it!” Lydia
” I learned that outside is a fun place!” Ellie
Visit to Tullie House Museum – Egyptian Workshop- Year 4-5 Gold
Year 4-5 Gold developed their knowledge and understanding of “Life and Death in Ancient Egypt” by taking part in a workshop at Tullie House.
We examined a range of sources of evidence to find out about The Nile, Hieroglyphs and Gods and Godesses.
We even got to mummify Tutantullie – our favourite activity.
Visit to Tullie House Museum – Egyptian Workshop- Year 3-4 Gold
At the Ancient Egyptian workshop we impressed the staff at Tullie with our knowledge about the Egyptians and their Gods. We learned more about mummification and took part in an Egyptian Death Ceremony. We looked closely at some genuine artefacts, which included hieroglyphic carvings and minerals used for make-up. Also researched objects used by the people of the time and had the chance to dress like an Egyptian! We all had a great time.
