Name That Tomb (22nd January)

With the final sarcophagus now complete all that remains is to name our two deceased Pharaohs. Current suggestions include Kiki, Emonca, TuTu, Choboochelly and Cleoboneyoo... Voting for the final names will take place later in the week...

Lollipops and Language Skills (16th January)

There was a great deal going on to day! This morning was given over to our new project centring on Road Safety and included guest appearances by Mrs Horne and an oversized lollipop... Art by Angus and Finlay

This afternoon was something of a change of pace as we put our French vocabulary to good use in conversation and by pitting our wits against some brain-teasing computer puzzles...

Music and Mummies... (12th January) 

Visitors galore today! First up, these Ancient Egyptian chaps were making their presence felt...

With another sarcophagus in the making our classroom is beginning to resemble the British Museum...

Our final visitor was music master Mr Firth and we tried our hand at playing as a trio!

NEXT WEEK: Look out for extracts from The Secret Diary of Howard Carter (aged 48 and a half)... Have a great weekend!

Jaws! (11th January)

What on Earth were these strange biting creatures which invaded our class this afternoon? Well, the answer's quite simple: teeth! Fear not - they're not as scary as they might look and they merely popped in as part of our current Science work. The picture below shows you what teeth are made from and you can find out even more about teeth by visiting this BBC website.

Name That Tune (11th January)

These maps created by Kirby, Bliss and Roxy are a good way of reminding you that you can access the Isle Of Tune webpage out of school by going here.

Hooked On Classics (10th January)

Part of today's PE work included the watching of a gymnastics performance set to a piece of classical music. The dramatic music used was Carl Orff's Carmina Burana - 'O fortuna'. You can see it performed by the BBC orchestra here, find out more about it here and even download a free copy of the music here! (REMEMBER: Always check with an adult before you download something from the internet).
