Miss McKinnon: May 2019
In Base 3 this week we have started to take a deeper look at Egypt! We looked at a range of artefacts and pictures of Egypt now as well as Ancient Egypt and thought of lots of questions that we wanted to find out the answers to during our learning this term. We then became detectives to see what we could find out from the many different clues we spotted in the pictures and artefacts.
We went on to look at Egypt itself, which continent it is in, what countries are around it, how big it is, and what the climate might be like. After we had discussed the map of Africa and talked about all the different countries we decided to make our very own human map of Africa. One by one the children were given a country of Africa and, as a team, the class had to help each other to position themselves in the right places to create Africa! I think they did a fantastic job!
