Welcome to 6EH
Welcome to the Autumn Term and a warm 'Hello!' from Team 6EH.
We had a fantastic start to the year with the children very eager to learn that their new topic is... Enchanting Egyptians.
To begin the day we challenged the children to a blind tasting session, which consisted of Egyptian foods.
I think their faces say it all. Yummy.... garlic.
A group effort, well done boys!
The melon went down well.
Enjoying a big mouthful of tasty leeks!
The more familiar foods like grapes, raisins, and pomegranate went down a treat, with the children asking for more.
They were unsure of the figs and dates but after sampling them they realised they were in fact very tasty.
Mixed reviews on the kidney bean, much better in a chilli con carne.
What a great effort from 6EH on trying different foods. Well done!
Literacy this term will be based on the story 'Secrets of a Sun King' by Emma Carroll.
What an amazing time 6EH had learning from 'Cleopatra' about her time ruling Egypt.
Continuing in the classrooms, the children worked on Egyptian art, drawing canopic jars, tombs and sculptures.
Playing Egyptian games,(mancala, spinning tops and leap frog) was the next activity.
Ending the day with paper weaving and pyramid building. The children were even able to bury a pharaoh at the bottom of their pyramid.
After listening beautifully to Cleopatra and doing some impressive dancing, the class moved on to carry out some Egyptian themed activities.
