Happy New Year and welcome back!
This half term we will be learning about the ancient Egyptians. Maths will be focused on fractions, decimals and percentages and in English we will be writing a poem, a story and newspaper report linked to Ancient Egypt.
To immerse ourselves in our Ancient Egyptian topic, we completed a variety of activities to gather information. We took part in an archaeological dig, learnt about the Geography of Egypt, gained an understanding of Egyptian Gods and Goddesses and learnt about Cleopatra.
To start our writing topic, we are collaboratively writing a poem based on Ancient Egypt. We wrote our couplets and then performed them to the class.
Thanks for coming to the end of Autumn Term Geography quiz! It was a fantastic evening - many children remembered facts from the We Are Geographers topic!
For our reading hook, the children were encouraged to infer who and what the text was about by looking at the artefacts and clues. There was a mixture of ice, snow gloves, Antarctica pictures and atlas clues, a severed finger (yes that's right!) and many more clues. They managed to piece together the clues and suggest that the text was about an explorer who lost his fingers during an expedition to Antarctica. It was about Sir Ranulph Fiennes.
