A Mouse Called Miika by Matt Haig!
From the world of A Boy Called Christmas, now a major motion picture, comes the epic adventure of a tiny hero
This is a tale about mice and magic.
It is also a tale about great love (of cheese) and great danger. And about learning that what matters most - when it comes to cheese and life - is not how strong you smell but how strong you are on the inside.
This book teaches readers courage, acts of kindness, and being true to who you really are, despite what others think of you.
We had lots of fantastic adventures this half-term, which were exciting and engaging for our eager learners. We visited the Manchester Museum, where we enhanced our knowledge of our History subject, Ancient Egypt, whilst we explored the extraordinary exhibit the 'Golden Mummies of Egypt. '
Golden Mummies of Egypt
Monday 16th October
- Visited the Golden Mummies of Egypt exhibition and, after an introduction to the exhibition from Dr Campbell Price, searched for objects that we think are important for understanding how ancient Egyptians were remembered and represented in life and death.
- Spent time in the Egypt & Sudan Gallery where we will looked for some of the different animals that feature in ancient Egyptian artefacts, and visited the Living Worlds Gallery to explore animal symbols and where pupils created a motif using animals to represent themselves.
- Connected different times and places as we visited the museum’s new Belonging, South Asia and Chinese Cultures galleries looking for examples of how people use objects and stories to represent themselves and their memories today.
- Investigated real ancient Egyptian artefacts and used observations and understanding of Ancient Egypt, to think about how they tell us about life in the past.
- At the end of the day your we will gathered in the Fossils gallery where we met Dr Campbell Price for a Q&A session: a chance to find out more about how the ancient Egyptians were represented and hoped to be remembered, how we know what we think we know when it was so long ago, and more!

The Borrowers by Mary Norton!
From the exciting adventures of the tiny Borrower family to the importance of each character’s bravery, there is something in this novel that all readers can relate to. Not only has it been praised by teachers and librarians alike as one of the most inspiring children’s books ever written, but its themes are relevant to today’s world more than ever before.
