History topic


Our topic in History this term is learning about the Bedouin Tribe. 


Who are the Bedouin Tribe?


The Bedouin Tribe call themselves the people of the tent, because they have no fixed home and travel around living in tents.



The Bedouin Tribe are people who live in desserts, such as North Africa, Egypt and Israel.

The pictures show what the tents look like and the materials they use to make the tent. 

What materials can you see inside the tent?

What materials can you see outside the tent?

Challenge: Can you make a Bedouin tent at home?

We would love to see your pictures! 




What is the lifestyle of the Bedouin Tribe?

Most Bedouins are animal herders who live in the desert during the rainy winter months and move back toward the cultivated land in the dry summer months.  They herd sheep, goats and camels. 


What can you find out about the Bedouin Tribe?


Listen and watch the tradition Bedouin music in the video below.

What instruments can you see?

What style is the music?     

Can you spot the mode of transport?   


Have fun researching!

Phonics Fun

Good morning 6K

Today we are practising our phonics learning

We are looking at the letters of the alphabet.

Have lots of fun finding and looking for objects in your house or garden, lets see how many you can find!


Here are some challenges for you all to have a go at doing:

  • Can you practise writing your letters in different media? Here is an example that I have done, can you tell me what it says?
  • I have used stones to trace over the letter, felt tips, paint, shaving foam and cornflour.


Can you sound out and write the names of these CVC words?

Find words with the “igh” grapheme in.

What are the alternative spellings for “ay”, write them down and try to create as many words as you can.

He is well known for work created from natural materials. Andy makes these in forests,cities,lakes and fields.They are known as land art.

Some of the natural materials that he uses to make his sculptures are: leaves,twigs,pebbles,rocks,flowers,grass and pine cones.

I went along to a forest area to get some inspiration and collected lots of natural materials.

Have a look at the artwork I created, I had lots of fun making these!
