Our incredible Homework. Egyptian scrolls and Pyramids! What creative children we have in Year 5!
Designing our pyramids. Firstly, we made a design for our mini pyramids made from spaghetti and marshmallows. We also used sugar cubes to help secure them. Once we completed these, we evaluated them and made changes. After this, with our junk modelling, we made a class pyramid to ensure that it was standing alone and unaided. This helped us with our Teamwork. We then helped out the environment by recycling all the materials we used.
On Wednesday 16th October, Year 5 went back in time to find their own Ancient Discovery. The class became their very own ‘Tomb-raiders’ for the day and handled artefacts from the Ancient Egyptian times. Once we had been archaeologists, we went to the exhibition to become explorers! We found an Egyptian mummy! All children had a fantastic day exploring and it provided a fantastic opportunity to enhance our Egyptian topic! A great day had by all and the children made me very proud with how they behaved in the museum.

I have spoken to the children about our DT lesson in a couple of weeks (22nd October) I ask that children can bring in 'junk modelling' recycling products. This can include: milk cartons/ bottles, juice cartons, Pringles tubes, cereal boxes, kitchen roll insides etc. Thank you in advance for you help with this.
