Pyramid Building workshop
Mr Hallam very kindly worked with us to build a pyramid structure. The real pyramids were square based pyramids however, our structure was a tetrahedron. Some of us found it very challenging constructing our giant pyramid so the slaves and craftspeople in ancient Egypt would have had a very demanding jobs in the desert on such a large scale!
This year’s carol concert at St Peter’s Church got us all into the Christmas spirit. Maple class performed 'Mary Had A Baby' which reminded everyone of the Nativity scene and the meaning of Christmas. Mrs Robinson and Mrs Robertson was very impressed with the children’s performance and behaviour and awarded a number of dojos on our return to the academy.
When the children come in to key stage 2 as part of the curriculum they learn a different langauge. At Thrunscoe the children voted to learn Spanish. During the Autumn term in Maple Class we learnt how to say and spell Spanish numbers, colours, days of the week, months of the year and how they celebrate Christmas in Spain. We sang songs, played games and used worksheets to help us remember. We also discovered lots of countries have Spanish as their first language.
