Term 3

Our topic this term is entitled 'Ancient Egyptians'.

Why do we learn about ancient civilisations? Who were the Ancient Egyptians and how do we know about them? As budding historians, we will travel back in time and develop our knowledge and understanding of how their lives were different to ours and their legacy today. When studying history, we are looking in the mirror at ourselves – looking both backwards and forwards. History helps us understand who we are as society now, how we got here, and what we learned along the way. When looking at ancient history, Ancient Egypt has some of the most incredible, compelling, exciting puzzles and mysteries that can be found in studying how humanity began forming civilizations.


Egyptian Day

Year 4 were very pleased with everyone who came to visit our Egyptian day and share in our learning. The parents got to see the lovely art the children had made and learn a huge amount about mumification, Pharaohs and more from the ancient world. It was lovely to see the engagement of the parents with the children and the joy the children took in sharing their learning with their parents.
