Autumn Home Learning
Our topic is about the Ancient Egyptians, in which the children will take on the role of intrepid explorers discovering more about this fascinating period of history. Some of the areas we will cover include:
- Some key historical dates and details of the Ancient Egyptian time period.
- A geographical study of Egypt past and present and the importance of the the River Nile
- Some aspects of Egyptian life that have been built on throughout history e.g. hieroglyphics
- How the Ancient Egyptians lived and farmed, as well as their culture, religion and art
We are fortunate that there is a wealth of information on the Ancient Egyptians online so the world (wide web) really is the children's oyster when it comes to doing their own research, however when it comes to researching, it is always important that the children explore with a degree of safety in mind with using child friendly search engines, and bringing anything that upsets them to the attention of a nearby adult.
Enjoy! From the Year 5/6 Team
