Year 4 Topics

The topics for the next two twrms will focus on Egypt. The second half of the Autumn term (up to Christmas) will focus on modern Egypt, its geographical and demographical circumstances, and comparing the capital Cairo with London. This will lead to the Spring term topic of Ancient Egypt, where children will have a go at mummifying fish, creating their own amulets and learning about the civilisations history and gods.
