Between the website being down last week and technical issues at my end, its been a little while since I posted, but there's so much to share!
As we continued on our journey through time, we headed to Ancient Egypt in Oak class. We explored 3D shapes with lots of different construction materials and tried to build our own pyramids and temples. We were in awe that they moved the temple of Abu Simbel in 1967 to protect it from rising water! (Monster Moves Abu Simbel episode is well worth a watch!)
We also wrote our names in hieroglyphs and had a go at making our own mummies!
It was an exciting week in phonics as almost all of the children have moved up a group! So be sure to ask about their new group and look out for some new books coming home too!
At Forest School this past 2 weeks, we have been not only exploring the environment (and having lots of muddy fun!) but focusing on our physical skills with the rope course. We have had 3 different swings for the children to try out and even had a new Rope Ladder to help us to get onto the course.
