The Awesome Egyptians!
This term, White Tigers are trying to answer the question “What made the Egyptians awesome?”
Our four different outcomes that we will be completing throughout the term are:
To create a detailed fact file about an Egyptian God
To design and create artefacts to display in our classroom
To draft, design and create a letter writing to the Collection and parents, inviting to visit our museum
To create a museum in our classroom
We will be exploring various different topics in ancient Egypt. We will be looking at where in the world Egypt is, what Egyptian life is like, researching and understanding more about Egyptian artefacts, Tutankhamun and other pharoahs, but we can't forget about mummification too! We will also have a go at writing like an Egyptian! Using ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs! Our research will encompass Art, History, Geography, English, Maths and ICT as we work towards answering our essential question.
We have started off the topic by focussing on when and how ancient Egypt started. We have started researching the different ancient Egyptian Gods, and are starting to think about which Egyptian God we would like to write our fact file about. In the coming weeks we will be looking at different Egyptian artefacts and creating our own replicas - these will be showcased in our classroom!
In Maths, children have been developing their knowledge of multiplication and division. Then we will be moving onto fractions after that. Working hard and taking new challenges in their stride, White Tigers are proving to be budding mathematicians!
Our classroom is already looking fantastic! We have an Egyptian pyramid in one corner of the room, and the River Nile running through one of our walls!
