20.5.19 We joined year 4 for another orienteering activity. This time they had to use the map to find the station that had an anagram to solve. It was quite tricky.

Learning all about mummification as part of our Ancient Egyptian topic with Miss Radbourne involved being brave enough to put their hand into a bag to work out which body part had been removed before being put into a canopic jar. They also had fun mummifying each other.
7.3.19 World Book Day. Can you recognize our book characters?
5.3.19. We had a visit from Jane to talk to us about what it is like living in Egypt. We also got to try on Egyptian clothes and eat a traditional Egyptian breakfast. The eggs, bread and tomatoes went down well- the ful ( a mixture of beans that was slightly spicy) was less popular! Jane started to teach us how to count to 10 in Arabic and the Egyptian alphabet.
14.2.19. Poplars were given the challenge of making a boat out of plastercine that would float. They then had to investigate the maximum number of 'passengers' it could carry.

4.2.19 We had a fantastic afternoon at Okehampton College for the Year 3 dance, trampoline and movement workshops. They had the opportunity to use the air-track, double trampoline, learn a dance.
25.1.19 Very proud of the children who could attend the Wellbeing event after school on Friday. They sang, played recorder and demonstrated the ukuleles brilliantly.
