Our ILP this term is Pharaohs. We will be exploring Ancient Egypt starting in the mysterious tomb of Tutankhamun!
Over the course of the term we will learn about mummification, Egyptian gods, the lives of the Pharaohs, the Geography of Ancient Egypt, the River Nile and much more!
To start our term off with a bang we had a guest in year 5 from Horrible Histories. Mark gave us a demonstration of mummifying a body, taking us through all the steps required along the way. He also showed us a range of Ancient Egyptian objects and taught us to play an Ancient Egyptian board game. We all got dressed up as Pharaohs or explorers for the day!
Year 5 and Year 3 attended a 'County Show' put on especially for Primary children at the Suffolk Show ground. Our class learnt all about sheep, carrots, baby animals, farm machinery and much more besides!
Year 5 had the opportunity to visit Denes High School for a Careers Fair. At the fair we were able to meet people working in a huge range of industries and talk to them about what their jobs were, what kind of things they did and how to get into the industry they worked in.
The careers represented at the fair ranged from Engineering and Science through the NHS all the way to the Armed Forces.
