Ancient Egypt

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?
