THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS

Our main class topic this term is the Ancient Egyptians. We will be learning all about the pharaohs and  their pyramids, as well as what life was like for the average Egyptian. I hope you will enjoy it!

Have a look at the videos, links and information below to start finding out about this fascinating topic.

Our other history topic this term is 'Guy Fawkes : Hero or Villain?' (which we will study around the time of Bonfire Night on Nov. 5th) and our science topic is 'Mission : Space' so we have a lot of interesting learning to do this term!

Our overarching topic this term involves the study of the world's rainforests.

Guy Fawkes News Reports - November 2015

Still image for this video
We investigated why we celebrate Bonfire Night and studied the true events of the Gunpowder Plot during our 'Bring a Parent Day' on November 5th.
The children then presented this information as news reports, developing a script that gave careful thought to audience and purpose. We used green screen technology to give it a final polish!
