Year 3 Miss Chandler

Spring Term- Website

This term we will be studying the Ancient Egyptians. We will investigate what rituals and beliefs influenced life in Ancient Egypt and try to answer some key questions.

-Why did the Egyptians mummify the dead?

-Why and how were the pyramids built?

-What difference was there between the lives of the very rich and the very poor in Ancient Egypt?


Along the way we will create some canopic jars, build a shaduf and produce lots of interesting writing.


Manchester Museum has a fantastic range of Ancient Egyptian artefacts so please take your child there if you get the chance. It will definitely further their understanding of this fantastic subject.
