  • Make a list of treasures you would take to the afterlife and give reasons for your choices

  • Make some Egyptian jewellery using different materials

  • Make a scarab beetle amulet

  • Create a PowerPoint

  • Create a timeline of key events

  • Find Egypt on the map and write some facts about it

  • Make a mummy

  • Write a message in hieroglyphs to your teacher

  • Find out about three Pharaohs and Queens of Ancient Egypt

  • Compare and contrast Egypt today and 5000 years ago

  • Create your own half animal/half human Egyptian god

  • Create anything else about our topic that you would like

PE will be football on a Monday this half term, but we will no longer be doing GROW.

Reading books should be returned on a Friday, ready to be re-distributed on a Monday.

Maths

This half term we will be looking at completing addition and subtraction before moving on to measurement, length and perimeter.

The overviews and lessons follow the White Rose Maths plans closely.
