A visit from Mr Egypt!

Year 4 had an exciting start to their 'Walk like an Egyptian ' Topic with a visit from Mr Egypt, who is an Egyptologist. The morning consisted of learning about life during the Ancient Egyptian times and the children even had a go at dancing! During the day, the children wrote their names in hieroglyphics and had a go at Egyptian Maths. In the afternoon, the children learnt about mummification and even had a go at wrapping a mummy, which was great fun! At the end of the day, Mr Egypt retold a fantastic story about a boy and his passion for the Egyptians. The story ended with a twist. Ask your child about the story ending!

A Visit to The Lion King!

Some of our children were lucky enough to travel to London to see the west end musical of The Lion King. We had a minibus full of excited children who took in all the landmarks in London on their way to the Lyceum Theatre. The children were amazed to see so many black taxis and ‘the big wheel by the river’!

Once seated, it wasn’t long before the show began. As soon as the opening note to The Circle of Life was sung by Rafiki, the children were hooked. The animals made their way through the audience and the children were amazed by the incredible costumes. A fun afternoon was had by all and we couldn’t resist a singalong to Hakuna Matata – we were almost as good as the real performers! Throughout the show, the children were impeccably behaved which was greatly appreciated by Miss Neame and Mrs Botzet. Thank you for a fantastic day! ​
