In this exciting, cross-curricular topic, the children will learn all about the fascinating world of the Ancient Egyptians in our topic, 'Tomb Raiders'.
In literacy, the children will learn and write about the process of mummification, write a newspaper report on Howard Carter's remarkable discoveries, draft, edit and present a narrative based on the book ‘The Egyptian Cinderella’ and use a video stimulus to produce a diary entry based on 'Tadeo Jones'.
The children will explore the Ancient Egyptian civilisation further in history and topic lessons, focussing on the period between the time of the first pharaoh around 3100 BC to the Roman invasion in 31 BC, when Egypt became part of the Roman Empire. Across the unit, pupils will look at the impact of notable people and events as well as broader themes of significance, achievements, chronology and legacy.
