of The Ancient Sumer, The Ancient Egyptians, The Shang Dynasty and The Indus Valley as we consider the similarities that these impressive societies shared.

This knowledge organiser is a summary of the key facts and essential knowledge that students need to know.

Ariana is enjoying reading The Robot and The Bluebird.

Today, we visited the British Museum and explored the different artefacts from each of the civilisations we are learning about this half term. Studying the endless artefacts helped us think about the reasons why the four civilisations we are currently studying were so successful and stood out from other civilisations.

Thanks for tuning in. Till next time, Hepworth class 🙂
