These provide the key knowledge we will be learning in our foundation topics this half-term.  It would be useful to look at these with you child and talk about them.  You could have mini quizzes to see what they can remember, draw parts of them, or they can create their own version.  This will help the children to ensure they remember the knowledge fully.

Look at our amazing learning all about rivers.  Our knowledge of river features is fantastic!  After creating a river in school, we made these magnificent models at home. 

On Monday 12th September, we enjoyed a day of learning all about the Ancient Egyptians.  We all dressed up in amazing costumes!  We made flat breads, learnt about the river Nile, made necklaces and hieroglyphics.  What a day!

Stone Age - Amazing clay work, artwork and look at the magnificent mini Stonehenge!  The children made fossils at home as part of their home learning.
