Earth Class


Welcome Earth Class 2020/2021 - it is going to be a good year!

We are so excited to have you all back in class and we can not wait to get learning and feeling more 'normal' again! We are doing lots of things in school to keep you safe so get ready to wash you hands lots of lots! We hope that you have had a wonderful summer break and ready to start the journey again of learning in school; we have some very exciting projects coming up that we know you are going to love.

Now there are a few things that we can not do, but there is plenty that we can do!  


Term 1 Prayer

We ask for your help as we begin this new school year.

Allow us to experience your presence in the many blessings you put before us.

Open our eyes to the new challenges and exciting opportunities that this new school year brings.

Open our heart and mind to new friends and new teachers.

Give us a generous spirit to be enthusiastic with our learning and courage to accept new opportunities.

Jesus, inspire us to do our best this year.


Our first project this year is: Pharaohs!

So... let’s travel back 5000 years, to the dusty realms of ancient Egypt. Cruise along the Nile, en-tering a world of mysteries and curses, mummies and kings. Find out about life on the river’s fer-tile banks, discovering Egypt and its fascinating culture. Unravel the secrets of ancient tombs, using historical sources and an-cient artefacts. Find out about powerful pharaohs and grandiose gods. Make yourself a nemes and you’ll really look the part. Become an apprentice and work for Ra-mose, the chief embalmer at the Beautiful House. Help him pre-pare a body for its journey into the afterlife. Now open the door-way to ancient Egypt. Who knows what treasures you will find?

Our first Mummification!

Our first two weeks!

Here we are!

During the first full two weeks we have been studying a book called Here we are by Oliver Jeffers. The children have had the opportunity to explore what has happened during our lock down time, how they felt and what were the highs and lows for them. We have taken our time in Earth class to think about how with need to learn to socialise with each other and made our class promises. The children have also thought about what they would like our world to be like in the future and how they can personally make a difference. The children have thought deeply about their own personal emotions upon returning to school. Even though we have not been able to sing we have enjoyed joining in with many actions of our favourite school songs. We have been very impressed with how all the children have returned back to school life and see each of their individual spirits sparkle!

Here we are!
