The Gallery

Today, J3 welcomed a published poet (and parent!) into our classroom to run a fantastic poetry workshop. Rachel helped the class to express themselves through poetry and verse. Children were encouraged to use their imaginations  to paint weird and wonderful images in the minds of the reader. Here are a few snippets from the session. Thank you Rachel for inspiring our class!
J3 conducted a fair test to see how different liquids affect egg shells.

Journey to the Afterlife!
On Friday, we went to Weston Park Museum. First we went to the amazing, fantastic Egyptian room. We learned about two mummies who went to the Children's Hospital so they could be scanned to find out about Ancient Egyptian times. It was so interesting! Next we went to the mummification room and we mummified Fred (a person who had died).  We also made servants for Fred called shabtis, which we made out of modelling clay. I loved the mummification workshop. Then we had lunch and after that we went to the museum and all of the galleries! My favourite bit was the circus gallery. I loved the day! I was really sad when we got back to school.
