Making our own shadufs
This week we have begun making the base for our Ancient Egyptian shaduf. We stuck half of a water bottle onto the cardboard to act as the River Nile. Then we covered the base with newspaper and masking tape, ready to paint next week!

Black History Month
We have begun celebrating Black History month this week! To get us started, we have been looking at the slave trade and specifically how slaves were treated in Ancient Egypt. We looked at different images and illustrations of Egyptian slaves and discussed what life was like for a slave. Here are some of our posters.

Making our own levers!
This week in Design and Technology we have been learning about the three different types of levers and making an example of each one. This will help us decide which lever we would like to use for our Ancient Egyptian shaduf. Here are some of our models.

What a fabulous start to Year 3!
I have been SO impressed with how brilliantly all of the children have settled back into school life and it has been an absolute joy having them back with us!
This term, we are looking at the song 'Let Your Spirit Fly' by Joanna Mangona. We have started to learn it in sign language and have explored what the music means to us through drawing.
