Summer Term Topic


 This term we are learning all about Ancient Egypt, including: where Egypt is located, how people lived, what people ate and wore, hieroglyphics and the lifestyles led by the Pharohs. Our Literacy and Numeracy will also be linked to our topic wherever possible.

The book we will be using in Literacy is called ‘The Gold in the Grave’ by Terry Deary.

We will also be reading a range of non-fiction texts on this period in history.


For homework, the children have created some wonderful 3D projects linked to Egypt.  We have been blown away by the creativity of both children and parents to create such incredible projects!
