During our history lessons we have been learning all about the Stone Age. We know that people in the Stone Age hunted for animals with the tools they made. We also know that they foraged for fruits and nuts. We looked at the evidence (cave art) before interpreting it. We made cross curricular links with DT and made Stone Age Stew with berries. We compared how the people in the Stone Age would have made it to how we made it in school.

After studying different pyramids found in Egypt we made them out of play dough for our partner to guess. We know there were red pyramids, bent pyramids, step pyramids and Khafre’s pyramid. We also found out that the Giza pyramid is one of the ‘Seven Wonders of the World’ and is the largest Egyptian pyramid. We then made a pyramid fact file.

Today the children found out when and where the Egyptians lived and used a time line to explore key events from Ancient Egyptian times. We became Egyptologist and our first job was to study a picture that was found in a real Egyptian tomb. We noted down any clues that the picture might tell us about Ancient Egyptian times and we will explore this throughout our topic. We now now what the following vocabulary means-ancient, pharaoh, chronological and Nile.
