Today we got the chance to look back at our mummified tomatoes that we created last term. We observed the significant changes that took place over the past few weeks and made some excellent conclusions about the effectiveness of salt as a preservative.

Egyptian God Artwork
To end an amazing term of Egyptian learning, we decided to take on a group challenge, to create a life size Egyptian God. All groups worked super well throughout the day, despite facing many challenges. We loved the compliments that we received from staff around the school.
Have a look at our creations!

The exploration of Tutankhamen’s Tomb
This term, we have been learning about the story of Howard Carter during the exploration of Tutankhamen's tomb, and the diary entries he wrote. In order to experience how it would really real to enter a 3000 year old tomb, we decided to create our own.

What a day! We have delved into the disgusting world of mummification! For our science experiment, we are testing how much salt is needed to effectively mummify a tomato. Have a look at how we got on!

To start of our week of Maths, we were set a very difficult challenge - to build a Christmas Tree out of nothing but straws and blue tac. We had to use our great teamwork to come up with a plan as a group, and then used our problem solving skills to build our tree, working through every fall and difficulty along the way. We thought we used lots of patience, resilience, listening skills and co-operation! Have a look at some of our creations!

As part of our Science topic 'Sound', we have been exploring pitch through musical instruments. Today, we made our own pan pipes out of straws to test how the pitch changes when we blew into different length straws. We had great fun!

Over the last few weeks, we have been learning about how fossils are formed and researching the great paleontologist - Mary Anning. We decided we were going to link our science learning to our maths by measuring all the ingredients needed to make our own salt dough. We then made imprints into our dough to create our own fossils. Have a look at some of our creations!

Wow! What an amazing day! We have loved designing and building our volcanoes over the last week. Creating our volcano structures was a little challenging but we used our excellent growth mindset to keep going and we were rewarded by getting nice and messy when doing our papier-mâché. When our structure had dried, we used our best creative eye to paint our landscape onto our volcanoes.
To finish off our volcano-making project, we invited our parents in to see our 'Ring of Fire' and watch the violent eruptions of our volcanoes. Thank you to all the parents who took time out of their busy days to come and see our eruptions. We loved sharing that experience with you!

Structure of the Earth
What a fantastic week, we really enjoyed kicking off our topic with a bang! We have started to learn all about volcanoes by looking at some famous volcanoes around the world. We then explored how volcanoes are formed by studying the structure of the earth. We made our own earth models out of play dough and then cut them open to see what layers were inside. Have a look at some of our creations!
