More Egyptians in P3

We are carrying on with our Egyptian project in P3.  We have been busy making masks, fans, mummies and Egyptian sunsets.  We used our maths skills to try to work out any patterns in how the pyramids were built, we used sugar cubes to recreate our own step pyramids to help us.  We have also been learning about the mummification process and have had a go at this

in class.  Still lots more to learn about this early civilisation.

Primary 5 update.

We have been really busy in Primary 5 this past few weeks. We have been working on the solar system and finding out about individual planets as part of our Space topic. As part of our work on the Victorians we have been looking at the class system and famous Victorian inventors. In art we have been looking at the work of Mondrian and trying to emulate his work with line.

Egyptians in P3

P3 have been very creative while working on their Egyptian project.  We have been learning lots about this amazing early civilisation.  We have created lots of Egyptian artefacts through art and design.  We have made masks, collars, sarcophagi, mummies and pyramids.   We have our trip to the National Museum soon which will really bring our project to life.

Busy times in P3

P3 have had a busy start to the new school year.  We have been brushing up our numeracy skills and developing our number sense by playing games, working in small groups and learning a clap/stamp game for place value.  We have had two visits from the Museum of Flight outreach workshops, one on Leonardo Da Vinci, we were learning about his amazing life as a engineer and developing our STEM skills.  Our second workshop was about Amy Johnson it was brilliant to learn about such an ambitious and brave woman, the first female pilot to fly solo from Britain to Australia.

We have been reading the book The Sheep Pig by Dick King Smith and we have been trying to find out a lot about the characters in the story, we used hot seating in drama to help us get a more personal understanding of the characters.
