Our trip to Ancient Orkney

We went to the Standing Stones of Stenness and the Barnhouse Village - here are some of us in a neolithic bed!

We visited Maes Howe - an ancient Orcadian tomb!

We went to Skara Brae - a neolithic village.

We had a great time comparing Ancient Orkney and Ancient Egypt!

Joseph and his colourful coat

In RME we've been learning about the story of Joseph from the Old Testament. He was taken as a slave into Egypt but ended up saving everyone from the famine!

Ancient Egyptian art

We have been doing some work with Miss Angier in art, inspired by our topic of Ancient Egypt.

Funky Mummy!

We played the funky mummy maths game - it was fun!

 

Papyrus

We made our own papyrus (it was quite messy!) and when it dried we drew on it. It wasn't as smooth as modern paper.

Ancient Egyptian maths

Maths was very important to the Ancient Egyptians. They used symbols for numbers - we had a go at writing some.

We played some of the maths games on this website.

Our new topic - Ancient Egypt

We are learning about Ancient Egypt this term. This is a history topic - about things from a long time ago. We made a timeline which went from the dinosaurs right up to us being born!

The River Nile flows through Egypt and it was very important to the Ancient Egyptians. We are making a River Nile display.

Caroline has loaned us a pyramid and an Ancient Egyptian boat to play with, it's good to play with them to help us learn more about the Ancient Egyptians.

Life in a cold climate

As part of our weather topic we have been learning about how people survive in cold climates. Louise has been to the Arctic and she came in to tell us about what it's like there. She brought in clothing, and also a replica sled - you can't travel by car in the Arctic!

We pretended to be huskies pulling the sled.

First we had to do a howl

Then we pulled!

 

Learning about materials

We have been designing and making coats for Camembear and Brie. First we had to find out which materials would be best - the coat had to be waterproof and keep them warm. We did experiments to find out which materials were best for this.

Here are the finished coats!

P1 BookBugs

Sally from the Orkney Library came in to visit P1 children and to give them their Bookbags and Book Bugs!
