History & Geography

 In this term we introduce an interesting topic where we immerse ourselves in the Ancient Egyptian world. We discover where Egypt is located and find out what we can learn from the Ancient Egyptian people and their culture.

We have a thrilling trip planned where we will spend the day at Haslemere Museum looking at a real mummy, viewing artefacts and learning about the art of mummification. During the day the children will have great fun learning how to mummify one of their toys!
