History - Ancient Egypt


During our final half term we will be focusing on one of the rivers we came across last half term and looking at a civilisation that was build around it.


Building our knowledge of the period when the Ancient Egyptians were a world power. We will compare the Ancient Egyptian civilisation with the society, climate and terrain of Britain at the time. Discover how the Ancient Egyptian civilisation came to an end and learn about the remains of Ancient Egypt that exist in Egypt today.


In our first lesson, we will go back in time!
