Topic Choice Grid
Please refer to the topic choice grid below and pick and choose which activity sparks your interest each day. These activities relate to the learning we are covering in Term 3 and are all centered around our Ancient Egypt topic. It is expected that the children will complete one of these topic activities every day, for around 45 minutes as part of their core daily learning. If a task takes longer than one sitting to complete, please feel free to continue it the following day as an ongoing project until it is finished.
There are 29 activities listed in the grid (enough for one a day this term). Please make sure to tick off the activities you have completed and please aim to have completed at least 20 of these topic activities by half term. This will ensure that the children are accessing a range of subjects and meeting their different curriculum objectives in their learning.
If you have completed the grid and would like additional activities and ideas, please ping me an email and I will produce another Topic grid.
