Ancient Egypt

We have started our new topic 'Ancient Egypt.'


We investigated why the River Nile was so important to Ancient Egyptian life. We discovered it was crucial for transport, food, resources and that the Ancient Egyptian's worshiped the God called 'Hapi' of the River Nile.




The children studied ancient artefacts and we investigated what they told us about life in Ancient Egypt! We discovered that to the Egyptians, cats were a scared animal that were believed to hold magic powers.

Last term we learnt all about 'The Great Plague.' The children loved it and were so enthusiastic. 


We started by learning about the context, revisiting their knowledge from the Great Fire of London.


We made fact files, posters, drawings, time lines and even learnt a song from Horrible Histories about The Plague.
