Our Unit of Work ~
During Term 1 and 2 we will be learning all about the Egyptians. Below is an outline of what the children will be learning in Term 1. Click on the subject title for a website link to help support your child’s learning.
Within Science this term, we are learning about forces and friction. Try clicking on the link above to learn more.
We will be finding out all about the Ancient Egyptians and where it fits on the historical timeline. We will also understand that there were many other ancient civilisations.
We will be researching locating Egypt and Ancient Egypt on a map. We will investigate the features of the River Nile and understand why it was so important to the Ancient Egyptians.
The children will be practising and developing their drawing techniques. They will also use their modelling skills to create their own Egyptian artefacts.
In outdoor Games we will develop football skills whilst indoors we will be carrying out dance linked to our Topic work.
