Pharaohs! Autumn 2019

We have read Secrets of a Sun King by Emma Carroll. What an amazing story - so many facts entwined within a wonderfully crafted, fictional novel.

Our beautiful canopic jars - fit for a Pharoah!

Derby Museum sent an Ancient Egyptian High Priestess to Pilsley to recreate a wedding. What a fun and memorable way to learn more about the culture and everyday life of different people in ancient Egyptian society.  

An Ancient Egyptian High Priestess Visits Class 4!

For this term's topic, we will travel back 5000 years to Ancient Egypt.

We will meet the Pharaohs, learn about Egyptian life, find out about archaeologists and Egyptologists and explore the tomb of Tutenkhamun. 

In this history-rich topic, we will unravel the secrets of ancient tombs; find out about powerful Pharaohs and grandiose Gods; make artefacts, masks and headdresses; and find out facts about the land of Egypt and the importance of the River Nile.
