Autumn Term

These are some of the activities that 4 Mahler did last term:

To kick off Charities Week on December 9th, 4M and 4B had a workshop with the Dogs Trust. Although Rosie, the representative, wasn’t able to bring a real dog, the workshop was really informative about how to be safe around dogs we might encounter in the street or park. We are now Dog Smart and know how to care for dogs, because ‘they are for life and not just for Christmas’.

In November, 4M and 4B went to the British Museum to explore the Ancient Egyptians. We joined the British Museum research team on their journey of discovery and learnt about six mummies who lived and died in Egypt between 3,000 and 1,800 years ago. It was funny to see a clay bowl that had accidentally been left on a mummies head, in the CT scan - the mystery of what it was, had researchers baffled for many years!


In November as well, 4M and 4B went to Tate Britain to the exhibition by Steve McQueen, who is a famous artist and Hollywood Film Director. He create a piece of art which included the class picture of over 3000 Year 3 school children across London because had been inspired by his own class picture when he was 8 years old. We found our pictures and had fun thinking about the lives of all the other children who had had their picture taken.
