Walk like an Egyptian… *Updated*


“On Wednesday, Year 6 were learning about a new topic about the Egyptians.  I thought that it was going to be a really really good topic because I have been to Egypt before and thought learning about all the pyramids their life (hundreds and hundreds of years ago) would be quite interesting.

So, on Wednesday afternoon, we came in from lunch and Miss Hall began explaining what our new topic was going to be. Then, our task was to design an Egyptian mask in out sketch book. Excitingly, in a few weeks, when we finish our mask designs, we are going to make our masks out of clay.”  – Benji



“Today, we did something really fun; we did a workshop on the Egyptians. We worked in groups of 5 and we learnt loads of new stuff. For example, that dead people would be mummified and that the Egyptians loved cats and hated dogs. Some people might think the bodies would rot; others (like the Egyptians) knew that they would be preserved.” – Charley-Mae

9/6/17 – Check us out ‘Walking like Egyptians’ (or trying to) while playing Sticky Fingers today!

Environment Week

This week is extra special throughout Prince Edward School, not only because it’s the last week of half term, but also because it’s Environment Week!

What is Environment Week?

Lets ask some Year Sixes what they think Environment Week is all about…

Majida – “It could be helpful because more children will know about pollution and can help change it.”

“It talks about pollution which is important to learn about because it affects animals as well as the world.” – Nathan

“Environment Week is to teach us how to make our environment a better place and to stop things like littering.” – Ebony

“We need to learn about the environment so children understand how important trees and plants are to our planet.” – Louie

But what do we do in Environment Week?

Some children have been outside on a nature walk and gardening in Year Six; others have been learning about endangered animals. Meanwhile, in Year Four, we’ve had the opportunity to make bird feeders and, in Year Three, we’ve been learning about the artist Andy Goldsworthy – who specialises in natural art – and creating some of our own artistic pieces.

The entire Year Six Team would like to wish our wonderful Year Sixes many, many well-deserved congratulations on all their hard-work and effort over the past few days.

It’s safe to say you have blown us all away with how well you have done this week – you’ve proven to everyone just how determined, diligent and astounding you all are.

As a reward, the Year Sixes are currently taking part in a fun-filled morning of sport and activities (inside due to the weather). We hope you enjoy this time to just relax and have fun!

Easter Extravaganza!

“The bouncy castle was the best day at Easter Extravaganza because it was great fun and we had the opportunity to compete against other people in races.” – Benji.

“The inflatable obstacle course was brilliant. We had to climb walls and dodge things, while racing our friends. Baking was good as well because I really like doing it – I sometimes get to bake at my nannan’s so it’s nice to do it at school too!” – Coben.

“I enjoyed doing different activities, especially baking. We made Bird’s Nest buns which were super yummy! It’s nice to be away from home during the holidays and getting to do things with my friends at school.” – Jessica.

“What have I enjoyed about Easter Extravaganza? Everything! Particularly, the inflatable assault course, pizza day, the general knowledge quiz (even though my team didn’t win) and getting to eat breakfast in our classroom – it was really nice!” – Charley-Mae

“This week has gone so quickly – we’ve had so much fun. I can’t believe its Thursday already!” – Jack

“Easter Extravaganza is fantastic – in fact ‘egg-citing’. SPaG/Maths rounders was really fun because, most of the time, I got the ball to fly across the hall. I also liked the Sheffield Steelers visit and I even got an autograph from a real Sheffield Steelers player.” – Blake.

“The bouncy castle was obviously the best part of Easter Extravaganza: we got to compete against our friends and just mess about for a bit. I liked Learning Rounders because we had to answer SPaG and numeracy questions while having fun playing rounders.” – Tiana
