Week commencing 6th Jan 2020

Welcome to Spring Term 2020.  Gonville and Caius class have really begun to work as a team.  They have taken a step up in maturity and their attitude to learning and I am really excited to begin this new year with them.  Already this week , they have shown enthusiasm, interest and effort which can only set us up for a fantastic term of discovery.

Our new topic is The Ancient Egyptians.  We began the week with tasters into life three thousand years ago.   The 'Loo-Roll' challenge.  Wrap your partner up like a mummy.  Who could create the perfect wrapping in five minutes?  

'Spaghetti challenge' in your teams, using only spaghetti and masking tape, make a square based pyramid and suspend a jelly baby, (Dead Pharaoh) in the centre.  Looking at: team work, listening and discussion, understanding of square based pyramid form, fine motor skills.
