In our recent English lessons, we have been looking at ancient myths. The Ancient Egyptians had many fascinating gods, goddesses and origin stories. By learning some of these we have been able to begin creating a bank of ideas to inspire our own creations of good and evil gods. We are going to utilise these as we write an Egyptian themed myth of our own next week.
Through this week in Maths we have been advancing our knowledge of statistics by revisiting our knowledge of tally charts, pictograms, bar charts and line graphs. This has included listening to some funky Numberock YouTube songs involving cats, creating tally charts about fantasy class pets, illustrating popular holiday destinations by bar charts and showing favourite subjects by pictograms. It is fair to say that we have enjoyed exploring statistics in a range of engaging ways.
In our Foundation learning, we began making some canopic jars by using strips of newspaper, covered in PVA glue, wrapped around some repurposed plastic bottles. We are going to be continuing to develop these next week. In Science, we discussed the states of matter and considered the melting point of chocolate. Who knew that science learning could look and smell so good?
