Year 3 have thoroughly enjoyed their Ancient Egyptian topic and have learned lots of key history skills.
We started the topic by looking at the period of time in relation to other civilisations and world events to understand the time period and make connections. After discovering a pyramid in our classroom, we looked at the reasons historians think the pyramids were built and ranked them in likeliness. One of our favourite lessons was learning about their beliefs and we really enjoyed writing mummification instructions. At the end of the topic, we used all of our knowledge to categorise burial items to their owner.
