Wow- what an awesome start we have had to Year 4. We have been busy exploring the Ancient Egyptians. We started off by decoding a secret message that was written in hieroglyphics to discover what our first topic will be. The children thought really carefully about questions that they’d like to find out about the Ancient Egyptians and we kept them safe in our curiosity jar. Everyone practised writing their names in hieroglyphics and some even challenged themselves to write their own messages!
After this, we thought carefully about where Egypt is located in the world and recapped our continent knowledge. We used Atlases to locate Africa which helped us find Egypt and then we looked for different features. The children found the River Nile and we used Google Earth to explore the pyramids too.
We cannot wait to learn more and begin finding out the answers to our questions!
