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.
We have been informed that unfortunately the fantastic range of Ancient Egyptian artefacts at Manchester Museum are closed for the next few years! However, I have heard that there is a great Egyptology gallery at Bolton Museum. If you get a free weekend it would be great to try and take a trip.
