P7A Fitness!

P7 were working on their cardiovascular fitness and strengthening their muscles today during our PE lesson. We participated in a fitness circuit with our partners and pushed ourselves to make improvements in the exercises we tried last week.

 

Good effort P7!

P7A Egyptian Art!

P7A were inspired today after listening to ancient Egyptian legends about the creation of the universe. Using watercolours and coloured paper, we designed our own representation of the legends.

Check out some the class working creatively with watercolour paints.

 

Read on to find out more about the legend…

The Legend of the Creation of the Universe

Legends tell us that the Egyptian universe began in water and darkness. Atum, the first sun god, gave birth to twins – Shu who represented the air and Tefnut, who was the goddess of water. They had twins called Nut and Geb. It was Nut, the sky goddess, who stretched her star covered body across the world. Geb’s body formed the Earth and Shu’s strong arms stopped the heavens collapsing on those below. The Egyptians believed that they would live on the stars in the next world. Many coffin lids were decorated with paintings of Nut stretching across the universe with her beautiful star-covered body!

Our artwork is a work in progress – we will post more photos of our finished pieces soon!
