  • World Book Day - 7th March

    Published 20/02/24, by Seb Chamberlain

    World Book Day is on Thursday 7th March! We are asking children to bring in their favourite book from home to share with their peers. Children will be asked to describe why this book is their favourite and recommend it to children in the class. They are encouraged dress up as a character from the book they bring, or they could choose to come in clothes they like to read in, but this is not essential. 

    During the day we will be completing lessons around 'How to be a Lion' by Ed Vere and taking part in exciting workshops throughout the day. Children will also receive a book token to spend in a local bookstore.

  • Mummified tomatoes!

    Published 19/02/24, by Seb Chamberlain

    As part of our topic last term we mummified some tomatoes in a fair test. We made some predictions based on how what the Egyptians used to mummify their pharaohs and unwrapped our mummfied tomatoes (after three weeks) today. We were very pleased to see our predictions were correct - the salt preserved 'tomato mummy' came out as the one that had changed the least!

    Published 09/02/24, by Seb Chamberlain

    Team Chamberlain had a fantastic day as Ancient Egyptians, they put in so much effort! We found a dig site at the back of the classroom, decoded a rather chilling warning about entering a temple and made some architectural tools using rope!

  • Decoding the Rosetta Stone!

    Published 01/02/24, by Joshua Cialis

    In 1799, French soldiers found the Rosetta Stone in the Nile Delta. It was found that the Rosetta Stone contains writing in 3 languages: Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs, Decoptic, and Ancient Greek. Scholars used the Ancient Greek translation to decipher the Egyptian Hieroglyphs. Therefore, the Rosetta Stone allowed us to decipher hieroglyphs on other artefacts so we could learn more about Ancient Egyptian life.

    The Rosetta Stone contained some names, names were contained in cartouche. The children had the opportunity to try and decipher the names using magnifying glasses and a hieroglyphic alphabet.
