We learned about the impact of Sumerian inventions on our lives today. One of their most important inventions was a writing system. The children used clay to create a tablet with cuneiform. 7.2.24

In History, we learned about how city states were organised in ancient Sumerian times. The children then created their own messy maps to recall their knowledge of what a city state consisted of. 31.1.24

History- We started our new topic, 'Ancient Sumer' by looking at a range of artefacts and predicting what we thought they were and what they were used for. The children loved exploring the artefacts! 5.1.24

Happy New Year and welcome back! We have got lots of exiting things in store for Spring 1. Keep looking this half term to see what we get up to. Our PE days haven't changed. Please send your child to school in their PE kit on Mondays and Tuesdays.
