Week Beginning 14th September

'The Egyptian Cinderella' is the text we are working from this half term in English and we had a go at sequencing the events of the story. We wrote sentences to summarise these key events.

In our Science lesson this week, we explored our mouths! We learnt about the names and functions of the different teeth in our mouths. Did you know that digestion actually starts in your mouth?

What an amazing first week Badgers! You should all be proud of yourselves. We have hit the ground running and have learnt so much already. 

Art - We learnt that the Ancient Egyptians created paper from the papyrus plant. The term paper originates from the word 'papyrus'. We recreated our own versions of papyrus paper using brown craft paper, glue and water!

Maths - We completed many different challenges this week, one being Pentominoes! The children cut out their shapes beautifully and worked hard to arrange them into their grids by rotating and reflecting the puzzle pieces. They took them home to continue their challenge... Anyone who completes it, should upload it to Seesaw for a raffle ticket!
