Malone Year 5
Welcome to Team Malone
Teacher: Miss Gayson
TAs: Mrs Steel and Mr Bromfield
PE: Monday and Tuesday
Our class is named after Kate Malone. She is an artist who specialises in ceramics. She creates ceramics inspired by nature.
This week, we have been designing our own pots inspired by Kate Malone. We drew our designs and then created our pots using clay. We then painted our pots. We have created some fantastic designs!
Each half term, the school will pose a science question for the children to try and investigate. This half term, the question is:
Will it ever be possible to become invisible?
Children can present their ideas any way they like: a presentation, poster, diagrams etc.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
Trip to the British Museum
On Monday morning, we headed up to London to the British Museum. We enjoyed looking at the Egyptian sculptures and we had to hunt for: the huge Scarab beetle, the sarcophagus that was used as a bath and the statue of Sekhmet. We then headed to the Egyptian workshop. We were taught all about the Egyptian mummies. We learnt why and how they mummified people. After the workshop, we were able to look at all the Egyptian mummies and the artefacts. We had a fantastic day and we have learnt lots of new things about our new topic.
A huge thank you to everyone that helped on the day!
