This term our topic is AZTECS 

The Aztecs were a group of warriors who settled in the valley of Mexico and ruled a large empire during the 14th and 15th century.

The Aztecs were known for being rather fierce – they even sacrificed humans in order to keep the gods they believed in happy! But they were very skilled people – great at hunting, fishing, farming and art – and what’s more they discovered chocolate!

Our Summer Term topic is Stone Age to Iron Age!

Aztec Pyramids

We have been learning about Aztec pyramids and for homework we drew or made a model of a pyramid. They are all on display in our classroom and we used Lego and lolly-pop sticks and even marshmallows stuck together with chocolate. We hope you like them.

Most Aztec pyramids were step pyramids with temples on the top. Temple-pyramids were used for religious ceremonies and sacrifices.

This term our topic is ANCIENT EGYPTIANS

 

This term we are going back 5,000 years in time to discover lots of fascinating facts about Ancient Egypt and the people that lived there. The Ancient Egyptians lived along the banks of the River Nile in Egypt, in the northeast corner of Africa, and were one of the greatest civilizations of the past. The pyramids, monuments and tombs of the Pharaohs continue to stand intact today, some 4,000 years later!

These are the topics we will be studying......

Mummification

The Egyptians believed in life after death and would preserve bodies, in a process called mummification, so that they could make the journey to another world where they would lead a new life. It was only wealthy Egyptians who could afford to pay for the expensive process of preserving their bodies for the afterlife.

 

Have a look at some of the mummies we made in class. We also made a sarcophagus (stone coffin) to place them in.
