Over the last couple of weeks Eagles have been designing and creating their own Ancient Egyptian cartouche. In Egyptian hieroglyphs, a cartouche is an oval with a line at one end at right angles to the oval, indicating that the text enclosed is a royal name. Eagles used a method called batik an Indonesian technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to the whole cloth.
Despite the current guidelines it was brilliant to be able to share our Ancient Egyptian class assembly with pupils, teachers, parents and grandparents on Friday. The children worked incredibly hard to put the performance together which highlighted a number of different areas of life in Ancient Egypt that they have been studying. Well done everyone!
In English this week we have been writing our own, tomb raider inspired, Ancient Egyptian narrative. We have been using the mnemonic DADWAVERS (description, action, dialogue, where, adverbial. verb. estimation of time, rhetorical question, simile/metaphor) to help us. We look forward to sharing our final pieces of work soon.
After 6 days of hard work and 238,489 correct answered times tables questions later we have been crowned the number 1 class in Gloucestershire on TTRS! To top this off because of all of your efforts the school has also finished in 1st place overall too!
I am incredibly proud all your efforts, this is a truly fantastic achievement. A special mention must go to Alex, Harry, Gil, Eli & Toby who all finished in top 50 within Gloucestershire.
