Our new topic this term is called ‘Underground’. We will start with a science focus looking at rocks, soils and fossils. We will then link it to how the Ancient Egyptians used the land around them to support their civilisation. On Tuesday 30th January, we will visit Leeds City Museum for an exciting Egyptian workshop. A letter with further details will follow shortly.


Your teachers are Mrs J Metcalfe and Mrs J Harker-Jones.

Spring Term 2017

Ancient Egypt

We have been busy studying life in ancient Egypt. We have built our own tools for working on The Pyramids and created our own pharaoh masks!

Studying rocks in science

We have had a busy half-term in science studying rocks and fossils. We visited How Stean Gorge to look closely at how it was formed and then completed a raft of experiments to help us identify different rocks.
