During this project, we will learn about the life, buildings, occupations and beliefs of the Ancient Egyptians. We will learn about the ‘afterlife’ and the creation and discovery of Egyptian mummies.

We will also learn about the climate and physical features of Egypt, including the River Nile.

In February, we will be going to London to visit the British Museum to view real Ancient Egyptian artefacts.

Using our research and understanding in this topic, we will make a short video about life in Ancient Egypt. We will learn how to use ‘Movie Maker’ to add and edit video and sound.

We will also make Ancient Egyptian ‘Usekh’ collars and jewellery to wear at the presentation of our Egyptian videos at the end of the topic.
