Summer Term Topic:
The Ancient Egyptians
This is a brilliant topic with lots of opportunities for many cross curricular links. In History we will find out about the earliest civilisations with a focus on The Ancient Egyptians and their incredible achievements. In Geography, we will find out about the country Egypt, The River Nile as well as other human and physical features. In art and design we will design and create our own model shaduf (a mechanism used to lift water from the River Nile in ancient times) and create our own clay cartouches. There are also many opportunities for creative writing linked to this topic and we will explore a range of text types.
Please see the key concept grid below for all of the exciting things we will be learning about this term.
