This term we have been learning all about the ‘Ancient Egyptians’. We had an Egyptian themed drama day which was led by Sir Teachalot. The day included training the children to become Egyptologists to work on an archaeological dig with the famous Howard Carter who covered some of the following: What was a Pharaoh?, Mummification – Why and How and How to build your own pyramid. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
In English, we have read Egyptian Cinderella and written our own information texts about Egyptians. We have also written our own stories about Tadeo Jones. In Maths, we have been focusing on written methods for multiplication and division as well as recognising parallel and perpendicular lines within 2D shapes.
