Living together - Learning together
On this page you can see updates over the term of our activities and learning.
We have learnt that the Ancinet Egyptians made their own version of paper using pressed reeds from the side of the River Nile. We have been creating our own mock Paprus. We stained our paper with cold tea to get the right colour. We cut some of our dried stained paper into strips and pasted them on another piece. When they are dry we will create a piece of ancient Egyptian art.
We travelled back in time to the Ancient Egyptian Era. There we explored ancient Egyptian writing and numbers. We wrote our names using hieroglyphs and enjoyed exploring the number system.
We explored part of the British Museum website to see and learn about the Rosetta stone. We also looked at some examples of Papyrus paper showing examples of hieroglyphics and paintings of gods and goddesses, objects and humans. We explored the style of painting and then had a go at sketching a range of Gods and Goddesses. We will be creating our own piece of papyrus art using hieroglyphs and drawings of our chosen God or Goddess.
In maths we are exploring place value up to one thousand using a range of concrete, pictorial and abstract methods to ensure our understanding becomes embedded.
