Your homework for the next two weeks is to create your Egyptians project.
At the end of term you were given an A3 piece of card: using the research in your Topic book create a project on ONE area, for example Mummification. You can only use ONE side of your card, but you can create more space by making flaps, and you can add 3D effects: for example Pyramids.

This week’s homework sees the return of the 100 Word Challenge.
The prompt this week is a picture:
Please write a 100 word story about what is happening in the picture.
We are also going to be looking at Blogs written by children in schools around the world We have signed up to a scheme called Quadblogging which links us with schools around the world. In a week’s time, children from schools in America, New Zealand and Australia will be looking at our 100WC posts and may even comment. Then we will look at their work in the future.
Make sure that your 100WC represents your best work.
This week’s homework is another 100WC.
