How many bones do we have?

As part of our Science learning (Animals including humans), I asked the children......How many bones do we have? After some estimating, the children were then challenged with counting their bones........

This included, counting the number of ribs we have, and the number of bones we have in our feet and our hands. The children all absolutely loved this activity, and we learnt that we have 206 bones in our body (not from counting them individually)

Fantastic effort everyone :)

Where is Egypt?

As part of our topic this term.....Ancient Egypt.....a very important part of it is to identify where Egypt is.

We revised as a class, all of the continents of the world, and then had some very interesting discussions on where we thought Egypt was (based on what we already know)!

We then used some atlases to identify the exact location of Egypt.......

As well as, locating some major cities and landmarks within Egypt.

Brilliant effort everyone, well done :)

Ancient Egyptian Treasure Hunt

When we all arrived to school this morning, we noticed how something had been left on our class whiteboard. After lots of guesses......had I left it? Had Mr Adams? It must have been Mrs Hewitt!! Maybe it was a ghost? We then had a closer look at it........

We worked out that it was written in hieroglyphics....which was what the Ancient Egyptians used to write in!! We looked at the map and realised it was a map of our school and that we must try and crack the code!!!!

We followed the map, and were able to find the clues around the school, which then meant we had deciphered the message......and it was about the treasure!!!!!!!

Luckily, we all found the treasure (which we all enjoyed very much!!!!)

Well done everyone, fantastic start to our Egyptian topic :)
