In Literacy, we are looking at information texts. Our WAGOLL (What a Good One Looks Like) is an information text on Ancient Greece.

To include some drama into this lesson, Miss Thurston gave each group a story about a Greek god, goddess or villain. We had to act out the story and choose a freeze frame to show the message of the story. We think we did pretty well.

Our topic for autumn term is Egyptians:

Can we walk like an Egyptian? Only time will tell. For now though, we enjoyed looking at some artefacts linking to the Egyptians and discussing the impact it had on their lives, why it may have been important to them and how it may have been used. In particular, we loved trying on the Egyptian clothing! 

Can you walk like an Egyptian?

In Literacy, to link to our topic, we are learning how to structure and write a good set of instructions, and have started by following instructions on 'how to mummify.'

We needed to be able to carefully follow the steps of the instructions so that we didn't get confused. We used the numbered steps and the time connectives to help us read these in the correct order.

Some of us were far too keen to become dead pharaohs and be mummified in front of the whole class!
