This week and part of our topic of ww1 we have been learning about the importance of remembrance. We have made poppies out of wool and read the story ‘Poppy Field’ by Michael Morpurgo.
Another 2 pyramid have appeared along the River Sparrowhawks. Don’t they look fantastic? Look at the pictures below of the pyramid engineers and their creations.
Sparrowhawks have been building their very own pyramids. They have used a large variety of items to build their pyramids with, these include Lego, cardboard,paper,wood and even flapjack.The children has really enjoyed working with all these different materials to make such fantastic pyramids. They are displayed outside the classroom , see the fabulous pictures below.
Maths looked like pyramid building for beginners this week. Sparrowhawks were investigating how many pieces of stone were needed to build different sized pyramids.
Our investigations involved us finding out how tall the Great Pyramid of Giza is and what that looks like.
The pyramid is an amazing 136 metres in height. Equipped with our trundle wheel we went on the playing field and found out that the pyramid was around two and a quarter widths of our field. Wow!
Our overarching topic this year is architecture and as part of this we are looking at Egypt’s pyramids and how they were built. Currently we are looking at pyramids and finding out as much information as possible before we move on to creating our own pyramids. We are using the internet to find out information, then it’s books, pictures and models and then……… we make!
