This week in our topic lessons we have been doing lots of reading and exploring about Ancient Egypt. We read all about pharaohs and their role in Ancient Egypt. We picked out the main ideas and highlighted them to help us, then we answered a mixture of inference and retrieval questions all about what a pharaoh does, the symbols of kingship and what characteristics were needed to be successful leader.
What were the most important roles of a pharaoh?
Today, Hugh Templeton visited Oxford Grove and Year 3 took part in a workshop reflecting on our Stone Age topic.
First, we produced some great sketches of Stone Age cave paintings ensuring we used our pencil correctly and included a variety of shapes. We then added colour to our paintings to add more detail, we mixed the colours carefully and used tissue to create different effects.
We really enjoyed reflecting on our Stone Age knowledge and working with Hugh Templeton.
What was your favourite part of the afternoon?
Our new Science topic is light and over the last few weeks we have been exploring how light travels. We have been making shadows and investigating the different materials we can use to make the darkest shadow in preparation for making our own puppets next week.
What type of material should we use for our shadow puppets?
This week has been Anti Bullying Week. We have had lots of discussions about what bullying is, how to spot it and how to prevent it. We brainstormed our ideas and also discussed the impact of cyber bullying.
In PSHE we have started to create our own anti bullying leaflets, to inform and guide other people when trying to tackle bullying.
SPOT IT AND STOP IT!
