Trip to Liverpool World Museum

Date: 12th Mar 2019 @ 10:14am

Today we visited the Liverpool World Museum to start our new topic about the Egyptians. We all had a great day where we were able to learn lots from the exhibitions and our session with Tony, who worked at the museum. We were even able to touch and hold real Egyptians artefacts! In the afternoon we went round the mummy room, where we could see real Egyptian mummy’s! We were all very shocked to see the crocodile mummy! 

We are now really excited to start learning about the Egyptians in our history lessons and in producing some writing about Egyptians in English!

World Book Day!

Date: 8th Mar 2019 @ 2:50pm

We have thoroughly enjoyed World Book Day this year. The children have put so much effort into their costumes, their preperartion for their presentations and their wonderful props, many of which were handmade. Thank you to all our parents for your wonderful support. We started the day singing songs from our favourite stories, we then showed the infant department our costumes. Back in our classroom, we began our presentations. We showed a prop linked to our character and discussed why we enjoyed the book we chose. We had a special visit from Mrs Sheldon’s class, they came with a special delivery of 30 handmade books. We loved hearing our stories. Thank you so much for the time and effort that was put into making them.
