‘Eggsperiment’ 1…

Eggshells are similar to tooth enamel. In addition, the eggshell protects the egg from breaking, just as tooth enamel protects the tooth from decaying. We used eggs to investigate the possible effects of water, milk, orange juice, coke and vinegar on our tooth enamel.

Do not visit this abysmal bistro! The menu was extremely limited and the food, when we eventually received it, was cold and frankly inedible. The level of hygiene was poor and as for the service…shocking! We will be writing to complain – watch this space.

Teethtastic!

We’ve had great fun learning about our different teeth – their names, appearance and functions.

Year 4 – Marriage

We have learned that a wedding is an event where two people who have chosen to marry get married. This can be a man and a woman, two men or two women. The wedding day should always feel happy and be a special day for the couple, with great memories that they can both look back on fondly and happily. We acted out a traditional Christian wedding ceremony. We thought about what the vows mean, who is involved in the wedding party and the role of the congregation.

Friday 24th January

Today in Upcycling Club, we have made some stilts out of old tin cans and thick rope.

We are all looking forward to a weekend of stomping around our gardens, a little taller than
normal!

Next week we are planning on making bird feeders out of water bottles and old wooden spoons, If
anyone has wooden spoons they can donate, we would be very grateful! Please
leave them at the office for the attention of Mrs Bodiam.

We are also going to need colourful magazine in a few weeks time, so if you have any you wish to
donate please leave those in the office too.

With thanks

A Day with the Egyptians at Norwich Castle

What a brilliant way to kick start our Ancient Egyptian
topic! Our day at the castle was lots of fun but also very informative.

The year was 1865 and Egyptologists had been exploring the Necropolis of Thebes in Egypt, making all kinds of fascinating discoveries. One of the team had recently uncovered the tomb of the High Priest, Ankh Hor, and wais excited to share their new knowledge with the world. However, not everyone felt that uncovering the treasured tombs of the dead was such a good idea…

The day consisted of four activities led by the museum
staff:

1. Meet the archaeologist - Exploring some
wonderful, genuine Ancient Egyptian artefacts and becoming amateur
archaeologists

2. Mummification
Learning how the Ancient Egyptians mummified the dead.  Visiting the Ancient Egypt gallery and seeing
genuine Egyptian sarcophaguses

3. Life in an Egyptian Village – Meeting an
Ancient Egyptian villager and learning about daily life in 1330BC and transforming
ourselves into an Ancient Egyptian

4. Egyptian jewellery – Learning about the significance and design of jewellery in ancient Egypt and creainge something to take away with us
