Autumn 1 2017

 

Our topic for the first half term is:

'Tomb Raiders'

During the topic we will explore the big question:

'Who really built the pyramids?'

We will begin by looking at the chronology of Ancient Egypt and geographical regions. Through a range of cross-curricular activities, the children will develop their understanding of Ancient Egyptian Civilization. They will learn about Ancient Egyptian Gods and Goddesses, mummification and the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb. The children will learn about how the Ancient Egyptians communicated through Hieroglyphics and create their own Cartouche. Through our Topic session, the children will work independently to design and make a Canopic Jar and find out about its gruesome contents!

'We're Going Crackers'

During the topic we will explore the big question:

'How is Christmas celebrated around the world?'

This half term we will be 'going crackers' as we learn about how Christmas is celebrated around the world.  As we learn about Christmas around the world, our focus will be on Christianity and we will be discovering the importance of the nativity story to modern day Christians.  The children will be creating tree decorations that symbolise this.
