Egypt came to year 4 today in the form of super costumes, a mummification ceremony (the mummies were quite ticklish so all organs remain intact!) and epic pyramid building. Tiger Bites were tasted, having been made yesterday from ground almonds, oil and honey under the careful supervision of Mrs White and Mrs Glover with the children. Also sampled today, with year 3, were flatbreads, honey cake, olives, grapes and dates ... needless to say there were many dates left un-nibbled! Year 4 continued with their Egyptian collars and will make the finishing touches after half term.
We wish you a very safe and happy sun filled half term,
Thank you too to Mrs West who has been supporting in class this half term.
Miss Chalcraft, Miss Bennett, Mrs White and Mrs West
Year 4 are SO lucky with their rain free Wednesdays lately!
Really super end of sequence writing this week! We had some superb ideas for alternative endings to this super story from escapee tortoises tumbling downstairs, parachutes made of lettuce leaves and relaying tortoises off of balconies! Such fun. All children decided that Mr Hoppy should not have a happily ever after, as he had lied to get the love of Mrs Silver! Quite right too!
We were blessed with the weather on Wednesday for our walk along the base of Cawsand / Cosdon along to the Triple Row. Charles and Debbie Scott were our guides and talked to us about the history of the moor from Cists, to Triple Rows, to granite splitting using the Feather and Tail method. A truly wonderful morning of fresh Dartmoor air and Starlings calling. Thank you to the Year 4 patent volunteers! Awesome effort Year 4!
What a super morning of forest school, Tepee building and team building - and the showers held off! We enjoyed our socially distanced hot chocolate around the fire with year 5 and had a good ole sing song! Thank you year 4, it was a wonderful morning!
