Christmas Clan Event

We had a great Christmas Clan Event this week.

The whole school got mixed up within their clan to tour their Clan teacher’s classes doing different Christmas crafts.

We all then came together to share our craftwork.

Many thanks to all our helping family members and staff for helping to make the day such a success.

Check our advent calendar the next few days for more pictures.

P4’s Egyptian Museum

P4 asked to share their learning with the school, they were enthusiastic about their topic and learnt a lot of interesting facts and they wanted to inspire others to learn about the Egyptians also.  They decided to create a museum and used their visit to the museum to help plan every aspect of the day themselves. I was very impressed about their careful consideration as to how to encourage people to explore the exhibits as well as have fun while learning.

It was a very successful day and we would like to thank all the classes and parents/carers who visited on the day. To celebrate the end of the topic the pupils wrapped some volunteers up as mummies!

P4 Canopic Pics

P4 have been learning about Ancient Egypt, they requested to carry out the mummification process – we used apples instead!

As part of this process the Ancient Egyptians put the lungs, intestines, stomach and liver in canopic jars.

The pupils asked to make their own jars, for this we used clay.  In the lesson the pupils learnt about how and why the Ancient Egyptians used the canopic jars as well as how to work with clay. Next, the pupils will design their lids for the jars choosing from a baboon, human, jackal or falcon.

P2B Chinese Culture Week

P2B today created their own dragons and listened to a legend about dragons.

We had the Panda Boxes this afternoon and the children worked in groups playing different board games and saying numbers and colours in Chinese.

They listened to different types of Chinese music, we compared the music and developed a dance from the different movements children came up with. It was lots of fun making up our own dance!
