Spring Term

Ancient Egypt Blogging!

 

We had a great time at our Ancient Egypt after school blogging event! Take a look below:

World Book Day

 

We had a great day celebrating World Book Day! Children shared their favourite books with friends and then took part in different activities related to their book. To finish off the day, we all made a snack for our reading 'snack and share,' where children read their favourite part in their chosen book to the rest of the class.

Ancient Egypt Day

We took part in lots of exciting activities during Ancient Egypt Day including: Investigating Ancient Egyptian hierarchy, reenacting life as an Egyptian farmer, making pyramids, mummifying a tomato and then ourselves! We then wrote a blog post linked to one of the activities. Take a look: http://kestrel2018.norbridgeblogs.net/ 

Beauty and the Beast Panto

 

On Tuesday, we were lucky enough to watch the Beauty and the Beast pantomime, performed by M&M productions! The children absolutely loved it and have written about their favourite parts on our class blog, take a look: http://kestrel2018.norbridgeblogs.net/

Science

 

We have been learning about the functions of the different kinds of teeth. Some of use then compared human teeth to other animals’ teeth, thinking about why they might be different because of their diets.

English

 

 

 

In our English lessons, we have been using our inference skills to find out the meaning behind the images in the picture book, "Tuesday" by David Wiesner. When we'd discovered that a swarm of flying frogs had hit Worksop, we planned a variety of questions to ask Mrs Greenwood who witnessed the strange events. We then reported our findings in a news broadcast.

 

What do you think caused these strange frog sightings? Take a look:
