Eye of Horus
As part of our art learning, we have been using clay to sculpt the Eye of Horus - a symbol of health and protection. We looked at different examples of the Eye of Horus, designed our own, sculpted it from clay and finally painted. We are really proud of our work with clay this term!
Finished Canopic Jars
Look at our finished fantastic Canopic Jars! We even added our initials in hieroglyphics.
We have been designing our own Egyptian gods. We used water colours to paint pictures of our ideas.
We have begun our learning about division using LEGO blocks and counters to practise sharing out numbers equally. We then wrote number sentences on whiteboards to show our calculations.
We finished off creating our Canopic jars by sculpting the lids. We created either a human, jackal, baboon or falcon to go on the top. Once they are dry, we can paint them!
In our maths lessons we have been learning about statistics. We have created line graphs using information on the temperature around different parts of the school and drawn our own pictograms showing our favourite ice-creams!
In our PSHE we have been thinking about our futures, and considering things which make us feel scared and what makes us feel excited.
Making Canopic Jars
We have been using clay to create Canopic Jars. We used a coiling technique to create the base, smoothing over the surface using water.
We have begun our topic on the Egyptians by looking at mummification. We have studied sets of instructions and then we mummified tomatoes – we are going to leave them for 2 weeks and see what happens.
