This week the children have enjoyed looking in the Atlas and finding out about Egypt. Some of them have brought in pictures and keepsakes from relative's travels to Egypt. Thank you all, this makes our learning so much more interesting and relevant.
In Literacy we have been learning how to research and make effective notes:
* scanning and skimming
* highlighting key information/words and phrases
* writing the key words
* forming sentences of our own using our notes - key words.
Here are some photos of some of the work we have been doing.
The year has started with great enthusiasm and hard work. Well done to the children for settling so quickly and making such a good first impression!
Everyone is excited about our Topic and learning about ancient Egypt.
