In Year 3, our history topic this term has been the ancient Egyptians. The children have really enjoyed learning about this period of history and the importance of the Nile River to this civilisation. All of the children enjoyed creating a model shaduf which would have been used to take water out of the Nile River to water crops thousands of years ago!
Mummification proved to be a very popular topic and the children created excellent recounts of the process. They were fascinated to hear that the brain was removed through the nose!
The children also enjoyed learning about the pharaoh Tutankhamun and the discovery of his tomb. They were amazed at the treasures that were found in the tomb and understood that this is why he is remembered today. They created their own death masks like the one found on Tutankhamun.
