Ancient Civilisations! 


During this exciting Cornerstones topic we will learn about the history of three of the world’s first ancient civilisations: ancient Sumer, ancient Egypt and the Indus Valley civilisation. We will explore and learn about the rise, life, achievements and eventual end of each civilisation.


Hierarchy in Ancient Egypt


Today we learnt about the hierarchy in Ancient Egypt and compared it to Ancient Sumer.

Topic WOW Day


Today we started our new topic, Ancient Civilisations, with our WOW Day! During the day we became archaeologists and studied ancient artefacts thinking about what they could have been used for and what information we could find from them.

We also learnt about BC and AD dates and how farming changed and developed through the Ancient Sumer times.

The Ancient Sumerians were the first people to have their own system of writing. It was called Cuneiform and we wrote our names using it and tried weaving.
