The National Stone Centre

Class 3 had the fantastic opportunity to visit the National Stone Centre to support their 'Rocks' Topic. They had a brilliant time and learnt lots about the properties of rocks, and were fascinated to discover how different rocks are formed. 

Panning for gems was great fun, although harder than it looks! The fossil trail was very interesting too, who would have thought there were so many fossils around to see?

The Class were then able to create their very own fossil! What a fantastic day.

Team Smalley enjoyed an after school session of gardening to look after our school environment. Each staff member chose a child to come and help with lots of jobs including weeding the raised beds, planting new bedding plants, planting potatoes, watering and tidying and repotting Hannah’s garden. All of the children had a drink and a biscuit after they had worked really hard! It was a lovely outdoor session, thank you children for helping!

Who needs Groundforce when you have Team Smalley?!

Ancient Egyptian Day!

Class 3 had a fantastic day yesterday experiencing life as Ancient Egyptians! 

We had great fun smelling the different spices and guessing what they were, some were much nicer than others! We then enjoyed learning about the ancient artefacts and what they were used for. 

Sophie was transformed into an Ancient Egyptian High Priestess. 

Did you know that the Ancient Egyptians used make up to make their eyes look like 'The Eye of Horus' a symbol of protection?

Unfortunately we had to hold a funeral in the afternoon as the Pharaoh had died. The body was embalmed and the 'Opening of the Mouth' ritual was performed. We wish him a good journey to the afterlife!
