SPRING TERM 1
Our new topic is Ancient Egypt and we have had a fantastic start to the term with some investigations.
First we learnt about Pyramids and completed a mathematical investigation about the number of bricks needed to build pyramids of different heights.
AUTUMN TERM 2
At the end of the autumn term we finished our Creative Arts Topic with a study of Georges Seurat. He developed a style called pointillism. We used felt tip pens to create our own pointillist pictures of York landmarks.
AUTUMN TERM 2
A busy start back with some firework fun. We have used shapes in Maths to make our own rocket pictures. We also made firework pictures using a special paper. We scratched off the black to reveal the colours underneath. We used lines of all different lengths to create some effective patterns.
AUTUMN TERM 2019
Our topic is London and The Great Fire of London. As part of this topic we are learning about fire safety and had a visit from the Fire Service. We all got to sit in the fire engine and find out about the different tools and equipment.
Sir William Petty - A visitor from the Past
We had a visit from Sir William Petty who lived at the time of the Great Fire of London. He told us about what London was like in 1666 and the story of the Fire of London. We learnt about how the fire spread and pretended to be houses. We also learnt how to pass a bucket along a chain of people to put the fire out. Thank you to our Parent Association - Friends of Scarcroft School - who funded this experience.
