Term 3 - Pharaohs

Welcome back and a Happy New Year!


We are very excited for a fun filled term.

This term our new topic is called 'Pharaohs'.


"Let’s travel back 5000 years, to the dusty realms of ancient Egypt. Cruise along the Nile, entering a world of mysteries and curses, mummies and kings. Find out about life on the river’s fertile banks, discovering Egypt and its fascinating culture. Unravel the secrets of ancient tombs, using historical sources and ancient artefacts. Find out about powerful pharaohs and grandiose gods. Make yourself a nemes and you’ll really look the part. Become an apprentice and work for Ramose, the chief embalmer at the Beautiful House. Help him prepare a body for its journey into the afterlife. Now open the doorway to ancient Egypt. Who knows what treasures you will find?"


We will be looking to discover lots of fascinating facts about the famous explorer, Howard Carter, and famous Pharaohs such as Tutankhamun, as well as exploring the Ancient Egyptian belief in the after life and mummification.

In English, we have been exploring instructional writing for mummification. The children enjoyed taking part in some role play, acting out the different parts of mummification.

In Outdoor learning the children looked at building their own Egyptian tombs.

We were looking at exploring what the Ancient Egyptians are. To do this, we followed a set of instructions to create our own Ancient Egyptian poo! We then used lolly pop sticks to discover what their diets were like.

Science - parachutes and spinners! In Science, we have been exploring forces. We created our own parachutes and spinners, looking at how we can conduct a fair test and how the size of our parachutes and spinners affect the rate in which it falls.
