Form of the Week: Form 3

Posted on: March 23rd 2012

Form 3 have had a very busy and exciting Spring term!  On Thursday, they had an Ancient Egyptian day where they all dressed up as pharaohs, Egyptian people and even mummies!

In the morning, they learned to write their names in hieroglyphics and made cartouches using salt dough.  They also solved some tricky Egyptian maths problems.

In the afternoon they had an Egyptian feast with pita bread, melon, sliced meat and strawberries.  There were also dried figs but not many were brave enough to try!

Earlier in the term, Form 3 participated in a Roald Dahl workshop run by the Roald Dahl Museum.  The children had a chance to write an alternative ending to the story ‘My Magic Finger’ and even acted out some of their ideas whilst dressed in costume.  They also got a chance to see how Roald Dahl’s ideas developed over the years.  Did you know that The Magic Finger was inspired by an essay on hunting that Roald Dahl wrote when he was at school?Their focus in PSHE this term has been the Olympic ‘Get Set’ projects.  The children have looked closely at the 7 Olympic and Paralympic values and discovered how athletes use these values to succeed.  They have each chosen one of the values and decided on a personalised project based around this.  Some children are creating Powerpoint presentations, others are creating animations and artwork and some have even chosen to teach a lesson to the children and teachers!  Everyone is looking forward to presenting their finalised projects at the end of the term.
