This week in Primary Three our Ancient Egypt experts have enjoyed linking their Topic work to Literacy and Maths.
In Taught Writing we created Travel Brochures for Egypt.
After looking at examples of brochures, we decided that we would make ours eye-catching by using bright colours, pictures and maps. We used the knowledge we have gained over this term, as well as iPads to research places of interest and facts that would persuade readers to visit the country.
In Maths we learned about the Ancient Egyptian number system, and enjoyed completing place value challenges with them. We found it really interesting that they used symbols similar to their Hieroglyphic Alphabet, and had fun trying to decipher them.
Next week will be our last full week of school and we are looking forward to finishing up work on our Topic, and having our last Karate session where an overall winner will be announced!
