As part of our Maths work this term we have been learning how to divide. We used some cubes to help us. This really helped our understanding of the topic.
As part of our RE lessons we found about the Hindu festival of Diwali. We learned how Hindus celebrate this important festival and what traditions they follow. We learned that Diwali celebrates the victory of light over darkness, good over evil. We then made our own Diwali inspired light catchers; they will look amazing hanging in the window for the light to shine through!
These are just some of the books we have been reading this term as we try to foster a love of reading in the class. During literacy lessons, we have been using ‘The Story of Tutankhamun’ by Patricia Cleveland-Peck as the focus for our writing for most of this term. We have used it to help write instructions for mummification and descriptions of the pharaoh’s tomb. In guided reading lessons, we have read the ‘Winter’s Child and ‘Leon and the Place Between’ by Angela McAllister. Our favourite book so far is ‘Marcy and the Riddle of the Sphinx’ by Joe Stanton.
As part of our work on the Egyptians, we have been learning all about the process of mummification. Once we understood the process, we tested it out ourselves…… on tomatoes! As well as learning about this gruesome part of history, the activity also allowed us to practise our observation skills in science and we used our literacy skills to write some fantastic instructions afterwards. Here are a few photos of us carrying out the experiment.
