In Maths, we have been learning about Place value. To help us we have been using a range of resources such as base 10 blocks, number discs and place value grids. 

Our project this term is based on 'discover' and has a history focus. Within this, we have been learning more about Ancient Egypt. As part of this, we learnt about how they communicate including written language. Below are some of our cartouches we designed and painted using hieroglyphics.

We also took our map reading skills outside and located significant places onto a map of Egypt.
