Summer Term 1 Week 1

This week – as always- we’ve jumped into the half term! This half term in English we will be using the phenomenal book Secrets of a Sun King by Emma Carroll to support our learning, we began with reading the first chapter where there was a peculiar situation of some random feet with no body to be found.

In History we have begun exploring the exciting time period of Ancient Egypt, this week we were exploring the timeline of events which occurred during this time and what other time periods overlapped.

In Design Technology we are concentrating on food and looking at and exploring different flavours. This week we completed a taste test, we tried pickled onions, sugar, cheddar cheese, 80% dark chocolate, cherry tomatoes, grapes, bread sticks and lemon. All of the children tried all of the foods and we discussed the different flavour categories each item could be placed under and then also complementary flavours.

In Maths we began exploring Algebra and Ratio.

A very busy first week back! We are off to the Centre for Life on Monday – children are required to bring a packed lunch.
