Autumn term 1
It's been a busy half term, and it has zoomed past so quickly! We have enjoyed focusing our learning on the Egyptians as our creative curriculum focus. The term all began with our book ' Pharaoh's Fate' the mystery plot to find out who was planning to poison the pharaoh in the ancient Egyptian town of Thebes. The children were super detectives using amazing inference, questioning and language detective skills, brilliant research and amazing talk to help their learning. 
We researched the Nile and found out about it's land use, located continents and land features and painted beautiful paintings of the Pharaoh crowns. The children thoroughly enjoyed their visit before finally concluding their work with the Great Pharaoh's Bake Off. New adventures in 'Around the World' next half term.

We had an amazing trip to the Oriental museum in Durham Today. The children learnt lots about mummification, the ancient Egyptian Gods and how the ancient Civilisation worked. They also had time to hole some artefacts that were OVER 2000 YEARS OLD!, ass well as write and decode some hieroglyphics and hunt out clues about the mummy in the museum. It was an incredible day!
