Story Wood School "Inspiring Minds to Universally Succeed" "inspirati omnia impetramus"

Autumn Term

We had a whole school assembly at Elim church where year 6 shared the Christmas story and each class shared something Christmas related with the rest of the school. Socrates did a fantastic performance of the song ‘Mary, did you know?’ which wowed the whole audience.

Socrates learnt all about the many Egyptian Gods and we tried to match their names and images to their descriptions.

Year 3 went to church to learn about the Christmas story and the importance of Jesus at this special time of the year.

Year 3 have been mummifying tomatoes to show how the salt dried out the bodies in Ancient Egypt. Many thanks to Jack’s mum for coming in and showing us how!

We have started looking at some strange and interesting Egyptian artefacts, what they were used for and what they tell us about the Egyptian people and the way they lived and things they believed.
