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/
It is great to see so many scientific questions displayed on our classroom wall. We look forward to finding out the answers throughout the rest of our Science topic: "Animals including Humans."
In English, we have been writing a sensory setting description based on the adventures of Tadeo Jones. We have also been creating suspense in our writing using show not tell, short sentences and scary noises.
In Maths this week, we have been finding the area of rectangles and rectilinear shapes.
Lots of us have passed a level (or 2!) in gymnastics over the past week and have earned a well-deserved award! Well done gymnastics superstars!
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.
In Art, we used the Ancient Egypt hieroglyph alphabet to write a message in our own cartouche.
In Maths, we have been dividing 2-digit numbers with remainders.
50 Cub Friday
Another 9 children are onto the next stage of 50 club! The practise is paying off. Keep it up, times table superstars!
This week in Science, we have learnt the functions of the organs involved the digestive system. We took part in a messy experiment to help us remember each stage of the process!
Sharing our writing based on the book "Tuesday" by David Wiesner:

50 club champions!
An AMAZING 9 children have moved up to the next level of 50 club this week! Kestrel class are smashing the x table challenges week on week, keep up the great work superstars!
This week we started our new Science topic: "Animals including humans." We began by naming and identifying parts of the digestive system on the human body. We were shocked by some of the organs involved in the process!
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:
