This term, Partake Theatre visited all Y1-Y4 and helped to bring our history topics to life! Year 1 and 2 explored the Great Fire of London – dressing up as people from 1666 and re-enacting the event. Year 3 and Year 4 enjoyed their Ancient Egyptian Day - smelling different spices the Egyptians used, investigating artefacts, acting out mummification and, most popular of all, an afternoon of role play, dressing up and enacting a burial ceremony of a Pharaoh. Year 5 and Year 6 created a range of Mayan artefacts, including totems, Mayan symbols and Mayan-lettering embossed artwork. They also enjoyed a range of drama activities. These enrichment opportunities helped to build the necessary skills of enquiry and develop a firm interest in the topic. The days were a great success and thoroughly enjoyed by all the children.
Y1 and Y2 children had an amazing trip to Skegness last Friday. Thankfully, the weather behaved itself so the children were able to make the most of what the seaside has to offer. The children explored the features of a typical seaside town but also had the opportunity to play on the beach, dip their toes in the sea and devour ice cream!
This half term, our school curriculum focus is History. Y5 and Y6 are studying Ancient Islamic Civilisation, Y3 and Y4 will be exploring Ancient Egypt, Y1 & Y2 are focusing on The Great Fire of London and the Foundation Stage children are looking at Julie Donaldson stories and Traditional tales. The topics will be enriched through relevant visits from Partake theatre group and visits to the Geological centre.
