Our topic this term is entitled 'Ancient Egyptians'.
Why do we learn about ancient civilisations? Who were the Ancient Egyptians and how do we know about them? As budding historians, we will travel back in time and develop our knowledge and understanding of how their lives were different to ours and their legacy today. When studying history, we are looking in the mirror at ourselves – looking both backwards and forwards. History helps us understand who we are as society now, how we got here, and what we learned along the way. When looking at ancient history, Ancient Egypt has some of the most incredible, compelling, exciting puzzles and mysteries that can be found in studying how humanity began forming civilizations.
In Year 4 we are coming to the end of our journey through Ancient Egypt.
We have learned all about mummification (ask us about our tomatoes!), Cleopatra, Tutankhamun and many other topics. We have written newspaper reports and retold stories of Ancient Egypt.
We are excited to share all our learning with our parents next week and have even practised a little surprise for you!
We are particularly proud of our sketches we completed this week. Have a look at our wonderful shading!
