Ancient Egyptian Assembly

On Thursday 26th January 3C performed a wonderful assembly, on the Ancient Egyptians, to their parents/carers and KS2. The assembly included exciting facts, drama, singing and dancing. The audience even got a chance to meet the boy Pharaoh, Tutankhamun! We were lucky enough to have our local MP, David Burrowes, in the audience who was so impressed with 3C’s ‘outstanding’ assembly. Miss Celik was extremely proud of all the children as they performed excellently. A huge well done to 3C!

 “I liked the songs we sang because they were wonderful and upbeat so we were able to add fantastic dance moves!” Arda K

“I liked acting in the role of Howard Carter because I transformed into his character and felt like I was living his life!” Christian

“The thing I enjoyed the most about our assembly were the amazing props we had created on stage because it felt like we were in ancient Egypt and had gone back in time!” Ola

Art Workshop

On the 21st March 2017, 3C had the opportunity to take part in a drawing workshop with the talented artist, Peter. The first part of the session involved taking part in a quiz, where we had to use clues in order to find the correct painting amongst many. After this we experimented using chalk to draw a flower – we were really lucky as Peter showed us his top trick when drawing flowers with five petals. We moved on from chalk and used oil pastels to draw our flowers, which we then used to create a huge garden picture with everyone’s drawings. It was so much fun and we even got to keep our sketch books!

“It was lovely having the artist come in and do a workshop with us because I really liked the black sketch books we were given to draw in.” Aisha

“I enjoyed the tips that the artist shared with us because some times drawing can be difficult but the advice he gave us was very helpful. Especially when he taught us the technique of drawing a flower with five petals!” Harrajan

“It was very enjoyable to play a quiz at the start because we had to study the different paintings so that we didn’t miss any details.” Annabelle
