Spring Term 1

This term in Bears class we are learning about Egypt. The focus is on geography, where is Egypt? What is the weather like? Is it different to the weather in England? So far ,we have looked at maps of the world, found out where Egypt is and which continent it is on, and how far it is from where we live and go to school.

Over the coming weeks we will travel backwards in time and find out about the pyramids, the great Sphinx and the names of some of the Pharaohs such as Cleopatra. Also, we will learn about the River Nile, the longest river in the world and its importance to Egypt now and then.

For art and design we will make our own headdress just like Cleopatra look out for pictures.
