Year 2 made houses out of different materials in science.  We based our houses and the designs on the story of the three little pigs.  We used a hair dryer and we huffed and we puffed and we blew the houses down.  The houses were varied and imaginative and the children used lots of different materials such as plastic, wood, paper, card and metal.

Bolton Museum - Ancient Egyptians

In Year 4 this term we have been learning about the Ancient Egyptians. On Tuesday, we went to Bolton Museum to learn even more and Millie at the museum was very impressed with our knowledge. We had an explore around the Egyptian gallery and took part in a workshop. During the workshop, we learnt the link between Bolton and Egypt, we created a human timeline, we learnt about mummifcation and even saw some real mummies! We also pretended one of the children were a mummy and we had to sort the organs into the correct canopic jar.

We were really lucky when Emily, a student at UCLAN, cam to demonstrate the digestive system to us as part of her dissertation.  This was a great recap from our learning in Year 3 and 4.  She taught us how the food we eat travels through our body, is used for energy and then how we poop out the waste!  It was pretty gross but great fun!
