During Spring 2 our Theme was the amazing Ancient Egyptians.
We learnt about the location of Egypt on a world map and identified the main geographical features of the country. We created our own timeline ordering some of the key events that took place during this period in History. During this topic we thoroughly enjoyed exploring what life was like living as an Ancient Egyptian and how important the River Nile was for the Ancient Egyptian farmers and people. Also, we discovered how the Ancient Egyptian gods were mummified.
We had a special visit from 'That History Bloke' where we were fascinated by the mummification process. Following on from this, in our Star Write lesson, we wrote an explanation on the process of mummification using a wide range of sentence structures and descriptive vocabulary. We even mummified some of the people in our class!
