The class calculated the total revenue from the sale of orchard chutney, jams and christmas trinkets. After expenses, which we paid back to Mrs Campbell, we were happily left with a healthy profit…
We will now decide as a class how to spend this money… early suggestions are giving to charity, equipment for the playground or a school trip! Thanks to everyone who supported our Christmas fair, we hope you enjoyed the fruits of P 6/7’s labor!
Working carefully with clay P 6/7 replicated ancient Egyptian canopic jars with great detail this week. Used to hold mummified remains for the afterlife, we hope to finish these beautiful creations with colour in 2018!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all in P 6/7!
