This week the year 5 children have welcomed their new reception buddies into school. They have been able to spend some time playing, reading and getting to know them a little in preparation for them starting in September. I'm not actually sure who had more fun, our new starters or the Year 5's playing in Base 1's outdoor area! Meanwhile, the rest of Base 4 welcomed some existing Base1 children into our own class.
The year 5's have also, in the absence of the year 6 children who are away enjoying their residential visit, been practising taking on some of the roles they will have in September. With thanks to Heidi and Brooke who have been assisting, they have gained experience in being in the school office over lunchtime, recording which children are on the bus, ensuring class wallets are circulated to classes and distributing the lunch registers. All good training for next year.
In our topic sessions we have been learning about the Egyptian farmers and how ancient Egyptians divided up their farming year around the flooding of the Nile. It was interesting that when we thought these might be were very different from the seasons and time of the year that we have in this country.
We've been trying to follow our own sets of instructions for making a mummy although fortunately we are starting with tin foil bodies and not dead Pharaohs.
The whole class have been practising our line dancing ready for the summer fair hoe down. After a few practise sessions both dances are looking good as long as we all remember which way to turn and can keep up — its a brisk pace!
Here's hoping the weather remains as nice and everyone has a great time at the Wild West school fair.
Have a great weekend.
Following our instructional writing for mummification we were making mummies for our sarcophagus's
