Terms 1 & 2

Walk like an Egyptian

Throughout terms 1 and 2, our topic is 'Walk like an Egyptian'. We welcomed Mr Egypt all the way from Egypt to introduce our topic and have already found out a lot! During this topic, we will be exploring Ancient Egypt and the relationship with the River Nile, creating River Nile models and flooding them to replicate what happens. We will be learning how the Ancient Egyptians preserved their dead through mummification and we might even have a go at mummifying an orange! Will they survive 4000 years or will they rot over the holidays? Watch this space!​ In Topic lessons, we will research Egyptian daily life and find out what is was really like! During Art, we will make Egyptian headdress artwork. At the end of the Topic, we will be displaying our artifact homework projects in our class museum.
