  • A variety of interesting apps are available. Several can be found here.
  • Explore writing in hieroglyphs using this hieroglyphic typewriter.

****Lots of you wanted to know what the virtual reality app was that we used at school to explore Tutankhamun's tomb. It is a free app called 'TutTomb 360'. Details are here for Apple devices. It is also available for Android.****

We've started mummifying our fishy pharaohs! The first stage involved slicing open the fish and removing its organs. As you can see from our faces, it was really interesting but a bit gross!

Term 2

Our new topic for this term is called 'Big Bangs' and is centred around Earth and Space. We will be exploring scientific aspects such as our Solar System, day and night, the phases of the moon and space exploration. Please find below some links to some online resources to support our learning.
