This term our topic is Ancient Egypt so the children were very excited to take part in a Mummification workshop at the Museum. They learned the procedures using a large Egyptian. We all went to the Ancient Egypt gallery to look at the artefacts, which included mummified cats and a crocodile!
Once back in school, the children performed a mummifcation ceremony in Sharing Assembly.
Year 5/6 spent the day in Stratford-Upon Avon to round off their topic on Shakespeare. They learnt about Tudor buildings and what life would have been like in the time of Shakespeare. They enjoyed the workshop at Shakespeare's schoolroom and Guildhall and visited Shakespeare's grave at Holy Trinity church. It was a lovely day and great to appreciate the fantastic historical and cultural heritage on our doorstep. Thank you to parents for your support and transporting your children on the day.
Our children joined other year 5s from local primary schools at Alcester Academy for a fun-filled day of learning in English, Maths and Science. They had a great time working in teams, mixing with other children and finding out about secondary school. They even got to make a bath bomb to take home.
