Where has that half term gone? It certainly has flown by and what a lot of super learning we have achieved. We have now come to the end of our fascinating Ancient Egypt topic where you showed great curiosity throughout, posing interesting historical questions and investigating these well yourselves using lots of different historical sources. All of your work, pictures and music are ready to be buried in the time capsule ready to inform the future about this exciting period of history.
Thank you and well done once again for the great time we had in London at the British Museum. It was so nice that you all seemed to have different favourite parts of the day from the gruesome mummies, to the Rosetta Stone and the highly decorated sarcophagi or even just chatting to your friends and spotting some London landmarks on the journey. I'm sure we'll remember this experience for a long time.
When we return to school after the half term break, our new topic is 'Adventures'. We are going to be exploring adventures that have taken place a long way away from Blackwell and indeed the United Kingdom. It's right at the bottom of the southern hemisphere... The South Pole. There have certainly been some very brave explorers who have been on some exciting adventures down there. See if you can find out about any of them and you can share it with us all on the first Monday back.
Have a lovely rest this half term - you certainly deserve it after all of your hard work. I only need you to do a couple of things so we are ready to kick off the new half term where we left off... keep reading and practising those times tables. If you know your 6 times tables and corresponding division facts by heart, start learning your 8s.
Have fun, keep safe and I'll look forward to seeing you on Monday 27th February.
Love from Miss Townsend xxx
P.S. Remember to bring a purse or wallet to school after the half term break as those of you who chose to have a job have now been trained so you are ready to start earning your Blackwell pounds!!! They'll be lots of exciting things for you to spend it on. :)
