Visit to Western Park Museum

We had a great time at Western Park Museum learning all about life in Ancient Egypt.  We mummified an Egyptian and enjoyed all the gory bits!  Karen told us lots of information about mummification and made sure that everyone had a turn at doing part of the process.  We then spent some time looking at real artefacts from the time and we all got to hold a piece of history in our hands.  We made shabtis that were small people placed inside the coffin with the mummy ready for the afterlife.  Then it was dinner time!  After dinner we heard stories about some of the most powerful Gods and Goddesses and how important they were to the Ancient Egyptians.  It was arts and crafts time next and we made necklaces and cartouches.  We then had time to visit the shop and spend our money.  Before we left, there was just time to have a quick look around the rest of the museum and there was so much to see!  Western park Museum was so interesting and so much fun.

Ancient Egyptian Arts and Crafts

Thank you to all who were able to attend our Egyptian arts and crafts session this morning.  What fun was had! It was a bit gluey and messy at times but the children (and adults) produced some fabulous pieces of art and craft work.  Enjoy the photos! 

Thank you for your support from The Year 4 Teaching Team.

Premier League Primary Stars!

 

The children in Y3 have been working with Mr Jackson, from Chesterfield FC Community Trust, to undertake the Premier League Primary Stars programme in PE lessons.  The programme is a unique and exciting education programme designed to help children reach their goals and up skill teachers.  As well as having fun and learning new sports the children learnt

  • to keep going until they get it right
  • when they work as a team it's easier to do things
  • everybody deserves a chance to be included.

The Year 3 class enjoyed a 'Fruit Pizza' event.  The children were provided with the raw ingredients and then they and their adult designed (and ate!) their own creations.  Much fun was had by all!
