Term 2 - Tomb Raider!
This term, we will be learning all about a time that was argued to shape our present day: Ancient Egypt. We will explore the power that was held by pharaohs and the importance of Egyptian Gods and Goddesses. By learning all about Howard Carter's discovery of the 'boy King' Tutankhamun, we delve into the mysteries of the tomb...
Fun Fact: The largest city of Egypt is Cairo. About 21 million people live in the metropolitan area of Egypt's capital city. Cairo is the second largest city on the African continent - after Lagos in Nigeria.
Our Maths learning will include addition and subtraction, to name just two themes, by using multiple methods, with a particular focus on the column methods. We will also explore grouping and sharing, by regularly learning our ever-important times tables.
In our English and Reading lessons, we will be using and basing our work on the beautiful text that is 'Marcy and the Riddle of the Sphinx' by Joe Todd-Stanton. We will explore the history of Howard Carter and the descriptions of those that prospered during these truly fascinating times.
"Diversity is about all of us, and about us having to figure out how to walk through this world together."
