Ancient Egyptians:
During the Autumn Term, we shall be learning about different aspects of the lives of the Ancient Egyptians(including links to geography, science, history and art and design technology).
Within the topic our children will find out about the life of Pharoah Amohep and Queen Nefertiti and how this contrasts to the life of a poor farmers wife, Aneksi.
The children will be learning about; life in Ancient Egypt, pyramid design and purpose, Egyptian Gods and beliefs and embalming and mummification.
In contrast, we will also be finding out about life of the poor agricultural workers; the significance of the flood, the houses, the baking of bread and making beer, the animals that were kept, the domestic gods like Taweret and Bes.
