The twins were and still are inspired by fellow Youtubers and professional footballers such as Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ancient Egyptian Jobs

Ancient Egyptian Jobs

Today the Jellyfish Class were learning all about Ancient Egyptian jobs and their roles. Children were surprised to discover that many of the jobs back then are still necessary today!

First of all, children researched the different Ancient Egyptian jobs and understood their roles. They then worked in groups of four to create their very own Ancient Egypt documentary about their day to day jobs.

Children had excellent fun acting and filming!

As part of our Science Week, we were treated to a workshop by Wiggly Wild Show. We chose the ‘Ferocious Feeders’ workshop.

We were introduced to a range of animals including herbivores, omnivores and carnivores – we even got to hold some of them! Although many of us were scared of some of the creatures, some of us couldn’t wait to hold them! For each animal we learnt many facts about understood their livelihood.

European Languages Day

The Jellyfish Class celebrated European Languages Day by engaging in a range of activities.

As part of our maths learning, children learnt about the French numbers and then applied their learning by playing a game of dominoes and flash cards with French numbers – it was excellent fun!
