Spring term


In the first half term, we learnt all about Ancient Egypt. This was a history topic focused on how Ancient Egyptians lived their life, and how their life and beliefs differed from ours. We began this topic with a Launch Day, diving into the topic through a range of different activities. The children made Egyptian bread using an ancient Egyptian recipe, cracked codes using hieroglyphics, and painted their own Egyptian headdress. 

In the second half term, we continued learning about Egypt, but switched our focus to the geography of the River Nile. We learnt about features of a river, the source and mouth of the River Nile, and how Ancient and Modern Egyptians use the river Nile in everyday life.
