Ancient Egypt

We’ve been having lots of fun learning about ancient Egypt. We learned about the pyramids and Tutankhamun and wrote some great diary entries which will be on display outside the classroom.

Today though we learned how to make a mummy and even turned one of the 1st Class pupils into a mummy. Can you guess who it is?!

Here we are in action!


How long is a piece of string?

1st Class were very busy last week measuring their classroom and many of the things in it while we were looking at length in maths. We used all sorts of non standard units like cubes and crayons, hand spans and footprints and even strides before we got onto the all important metre. Well done to Louie for figuring out why we need a standard unit of measure.

When we ran out of things to measure we threw bean bags in the hall and measured how far we could throw too.

Our estimating has gotten really good. Ryan even managed to guess Mrs. McDowell’s exact height! Pretty impressive. Well ─Ćone Ryan!

Here are some photos of us in action. Now it may look like it’s all fun and games but we promise we were hard at work!


What a special and fun start to the day we had in 1st Class today! We were the first customers in the Development Committee’s Readauranto, their book tasting restaurant. We had so must fun taste testing different genres of books and the bread sticks were yummy too! A huge thank you the Ms. Harris and the Development Committee for a great morning and for all the hard work and preparation.
