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.
