Friday 29th November

In year 5 this week, we have been learning about Ancient Egyptian hobbies. We discussed how historians knew about the hobbies of people from over 4,000 years ago. The children had the opportunity to play the game Senet. We know this game was played by people from all walks of life. A Senet board game was found in Tutankhamun's tomb as well as being painted on the walls of Nefertiti's tomb.

Friday 15th November

Townley class have had a busy week this week! Monday morning didn't go 100% to plan as it was far to wet to go to the cinema, but Mr Wells rescued the day and we watched the DVD in the hall. Our Literacy this week has been based on the film and we have been writing film reviews.

Maths has been based on graphs and today we used the laptops to make our own line graphs. 

Yesterday was a very busy day, we all went to the Marlowe to watch "Nativity the Musical". It was a long day but well worth it!​

This week, as part of our Pioneering Places Project, we tried to make the biggest artwork (using only straws and tape) that we could. This needed to stand up and was inspired by Conrad Shawcross. Some people were using chairs and even their bodies to hold their structures up! We had a discussion about whether this was cheating or not but we couldn't agree.

In Literacy we have been writing newspaper reports based on Howard Carter finding Tutankhamun's tomb. Inside the tomb there was over 3,000 items, including treasure and weapons.

In Maths we have been looking at adding and subtracting using a variety of mental methods.

In celebration of Remembrance Day we have coloured in Poppies and you can find them outside.
