Year 4 One World Week - Egypt

Date: 7th Jun 2017 @ 11:34am

One World Week offers inspiration and hope to encourage people to take action to build a just, more equal, inclusive and peaceful world that safeguards environmental resources for future generations. OWW seeks to raise people’s awareness and understanding of the injustices which cause poverty and conflict across the planet and in our local communities and threaten a bleak future for our children.

Year 4 have used Egypt as their focus for One World Week. We have been learning lots about Egyptian history and culture whilst exploring the country Geographically. 

Did you know that the River Nile is generally regarded as the longest river in the world?!

We have learnt that many refugees from nearby countries including Syria have fled to Egypt in recent years to escape war. We explored the UN convention rights of the child and discussed how we would help to welcome a refugee into the UK.

Here is some of our Ancient Eygptian artwork we have been producing! We have painted our names using hieroglyphs.

What do you think?
