Our Learning Journey (Spring Term)
Our topic for the second half of the spring term is all about ancient Egypt. Each lesson will have a key question and a skill. The questions are:
- Why is the River Nile so important?
- Who was Tutankhamun and how do we know about him?
- What does Tutankhamun's tomb tell us about Egyptian beliefs?
- Where was his tomb found and how was it built?
- What is the legacy of ancient Egypt?
