This term our topic is called 'Temples, Tombs and Treasures.' We will be learning all about Ancient Egypt and answering questions such as: Who were the pharaohs? Why did people settle in Egypt? How was the River Nile important?
We had lots of fun during our topic opener, when we became Egyptologists exploring tombs, sketching artifacts and making artifacts of our own.

Autumn Term - Gateways To The World
This term we have been learning all about Ancient Egypt in our topic 'Temples, Tombs and Treasures.' We found out all about how mummies are made and even got to mummify our own pharaoh.
We had lots of fun using Skype to talk to an Egyptologist who was able to answer all of our questions.
This term we have my favourite topic, Saving The Word. We will be doing lots of Geography and learning all about the rainforests around the Earth.
