As part of our express, we learnt about the events that lead to the death of Cleopatra VII.
We researched using Ipads the different versions of how she died and then chose the one we thought was most reliable and accepted. We then created posters during our computing lesson relating to her life and the version of her death we thought was most accepted.
We then practised our presentation within our groups in preparation for our express. In the final lesson, we presented our presentation to the whole of the class.

As part of our innovate day, in year 5, we have been creating various things using all of the facts that we have learnt about Ancient Egyptians this half term. First, we created some amazing Death Masks using different materials. Then we learnt more about the Ancient Egyptian afterlife and designed our own sarcophagus and coffins using hieroglyphics. Finally, we had a fantastic time at Now Press Play where we imagined that we were in Ancient Egypt, sitting on the banks of the River Nile and stepping into magnificent Egyptian temples.

English Hot seating!
Before writing our diary entries, we had a go at using role play to help us think like Tutmose. A few of us were lucky enough to sit in the teachers chair and act as Tutmose while the rest of the class asked us questions about Tutmose’s thoughts and feelings.

World Mental Health Day
Today was World Mental Health Day!
We began our day with an assembly regarding mental health day and to raise awareness. We then started our lessons with an Eric starter. This day was extremely important as it plays a vital part in preventing child and adult mental ill health. The ethos of the day was for us to communicate the message that we as a community need to remove the stigma attached to mental ill health. During the day we completed many fun activities around this theme!
