In the Autumn Term our focus is on History looking at Egypt. This is an in-depth study of ancient Egypt and their civilisation. We begin by locating the Ancient Egyptians on the timeline followed by investigating how the Ancient Egyptians were grouped in a hierarchical society. We learn about their lives, Gods, mummification and the building of pyramids.
In the Spring Term, our topic is Globe Trotting where our focus is Geography. This will equip children with the knowledge about diverse places, people and natural and human environments.
We will continue Geography in the Summer Term, communicating geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps. We also look at Europe through aerial photographs, globes, etc.
