 In Music, we'll be finding out:
  • About the instruments used in Ancient Egypt
  • How to create our own music to retell a story from an ancient civilisation 
 In Art, we'll be finding out:

  • How to plan and create our own tomb wall painting

In International, we'll be finding out:

In addition to all of this, we are planning to have an 'Egyptian Day', later in the term, where the children will have the opportunity to dress up as Egyptians, taste Egyptian food, play Egyptian games, etc! More details to follow!
 
Our trip to the British Museum on Tuesday 19th September has now been confirmed. A letter will go out to parents the week before the trip confirming all the details, timings, etc. This is a great opportunity to consolidate our classroom learning and a trip the children will benefit greatly from.
