As part of our learning for STEM Week, Eagles class took on a design challenge to create new souvenirs for the Egyptians Exhibit at the Bristol Museum. They were put into teams and given a brief to follow. They created their own logos for their team and collaborated to create a range of t-shirts and key rings. Lastly, they presented their work to the rest of the class with interesting and exciting product descriptions. As you can see, the results are fabulous! Well done Eagles!

As part of our topic about the Ancient Egyptians, Eagles class went to Bristol Museum to explore their exhibition and do a workshop with the staff there. We learnt more about the life and afterlife of Egyptians, and got to see real life artefacts from the time period. During our workshop we learnt about a lady called Amelia Edwards, an Egyptologist from Bristol. We got to handle real life artefacts alongside replicas and had to work out which region of Egypt they belonged to. We all had a fantastic day and are looking forward to learning some more about the Ancient Egyptians over the rest of the term!

On Wednesday, in conjunction with our Outdoor Learning Day, Eagles and Golden joined together for an unusual spelling lesson. We thought of a variety of words and used the natural resources of the school to spell them. We all really enjoyed our time spent outside, and will continue to take our learning outdoors!

This week Eagles had the opportunity to visit the Shah Jalal Jame Mosque in Easton, Bristol. We were met by Riz, who showed us around the mosque and talked with us about many different parts of the Islamic faith. We learnt so many interesting facts, including that the Masjid al-Haram Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia can hold around 2-3 million people and is the same size as Wales! We had lots of questions which Riz was happy to answer for us. We even got to had a look around Mecca with a pair of VR goggles and a 3D video taken by Riz on his last pilgrimage. Overall, it was a really positive experience which we all thoroughly enjoyed.

This week, Eagles class received a letter from archaeologist Howard Carter. He requested their help in exploring a tomb he had discovered, deep in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt. They were asked to bring their sketchbooks, pens and some torches to help record the ancient artefacts. There were even some books left to find out more about this ancient civilisation.

Last Thursday the whole school became ‘Curious Linguists’, and spent the day learning about another country from around the world. Eagles class looked at Japan, and did activities like; writing postcards, origami cranes, learning how to count in Japanese, using drawing inks to write the Japanese numbers, and making sushi! We also had a visitor who has been to Japan, and they brought in so many interesting things for us to look at. We saw how their books and comics are read in the opposite direction to how we read ours, and had lots of questions to ask.

We had a fantastic time when Travelling Kitchen came to visit, bringing lots of delicious recipes (which can be found on this blog) with them. We practised a whole range of cooking skills, and learnt plenty about the Mayans and the foods they used to cook and eat. One of our favourite parts was the hot drinking chocolate – perfect for wintry weather!
