Well done everyone on reciting your poems this week! You were all amazing. We had a super variety of poems with subjects including: 

a peppermint stick, a turtle, a snowball, a crocodile, a fat cat and many more! Also a beautiful poem from Megan Hackett about Grandad that deserves a special mention. Well done to everyone! smiley

We will also study artefacts and learn about how we know so much about this ancient civilisation. Later in the term we will enjoy an Ancient Egyptian day when you can come dressed as an Egyptian or a mummy!
