Why did the Egyptians stop building pyramids?
This term our topic is Egyptians. In this topic we will be using our historical knowledge to explore the history of Egypt. We will be exploring how the Egyptians built pyramids, what hieroglyphics are and how Tutankhamun’s tomb was finally discovered after hundreds of years. Next week we will be getting an Ancient Egyptian artefact box. Being Historians we will use the items in the box we will be carry out different activities .
Next week in English we will continue to look at the book ‘The Egyptian Cinderella’ by Shirley Climo. We will retell the story through a story map before writing our own version of Egyptian Cinderella.
