Our most recent Geography and History topic theme was "Fantastic Pharaohs". We found out an extraordinary number of WOW facts and learnt all about life in Ancient Egypt. We stepped back in time down through the school exploring how long ago the Ancient Egyptians lived, exploring who the Egyptians were and why they were so important. We sailed down the River Nile to explore the importance of this amazing resources to the Egyptians and climbed high up onto the Pyramids.
I must say, discovering the tomb of Tutankhamun and exploring the life of a pharaoh was a favourite from all the classes!
