Willow have been looking at timelines and milestones of the Ancient Egyptian period to kick start our topic work. We had loads of fun trying to place events on a timeline which spanned the length of the classroom. We have also made some Egyptian jewellery for our role play area and mapped the River Nile.

Forest school
 
We had our first forest school session this week. The class got to develop their teamwork and problem solving skills by building dens, went on hunts for different things that can be found in nature, and got to make their own spinning tops and necklaces. We also got to have hot chocolate and sit around a campfire! 
Science
 
We are currently learning about sound and how sound waves travel. This week we have looked at the inner workings of the ear and what needs to happen for us to hear sound. The children made their own ear trumpets to test their hypothesis! So far we have also explored how vibrations can travel through different matters.
