Today Year 3 conducted a Science Investigation about Light and Dark. We spent some time making observations in the Medical Room with the lights on. We then had an even more exciting time sitting in the pitch black making observations about the darkness. Some of us were nervous and excited at first. By the end of the investigation we all had a lot of fun and learnt some very important things about Light and Dark. Ask us about it today!
Ever wondered how important people like pharaohs were mummified?
The Egyptians believed that after death they would have a new kind of life called the afterlife. As well as needing all their everyday possessions for the next life, they also needed their bodies and so they were preserved or mummified after they died.
Have a look at the links below to learn more about the mummification process.
After today’s downpour of snow, Rowan Class took the opportunity to go out into the ‘blizzard’ and afterwards we wrote snow poems. Here are some of the best lines:
Freezing, frosty flakes flutter and fly. -Affan
Cheeks, red like roses. – Hafizah
Frosty flakes freezing frozen fingers. – Najib
Grey clouds cover the sky like a blanket. – Shaek
Fluffy white feathers falling from the sky. – Raeesah
Clear, cold crystal come down from the clouds. – Rayan
White snow dashing down like rain. – Xavier
Cold fluffy clouds spinning in the freezing air. – Sahar
Cold crystals twirling in the sky. Like a ballerina as graceful as a birds sweet song. – Aidah
Like 1000 ballerinas twirling to the grounds, they bring smiles to children’s faces. – Rahim
Soft snow spins like a spinning top. -Rahmah
Like millions of white parachutes falling to the Earth, freezing frosty fingers. – Zainab
A single snowflake floats by and lands on a branch, like a beautiful butterfly. – Amaan
