In year 4, we are learning about The Egyptians.  Out topic is called ‘Temples, Tombs and Treasures’. Here are a few things you could do to prepare for this topic:

  • Research Egyptian Gods and make a fact file
  • Make your own Canopic jars (you’ll have to research what they are).
  • Try writing in hieroglyphs (you could try to make your own papyrus paper out of brown   paper, glue and sugar).
  • Make an Egyptian mask
  • Make your own Canopic jars (you’ll have to research what they are).
  • Design a pyramid you think would be safe from grave robbers.
  • Make your own sarcophagus. What things are you going to put inside it?
  • Write a newspaper report about the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb.
  • Learn this song   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUyk4VNzUMc
  • In DT we are learning about healthy foods and meals. The Egyptians liked bread and garlic. They also loved vegetables! You could help prepare and cook an Egyptian banquet.
  • For science we are learning about sound.  You could research Egyptian instruments and maybe make your own. Explore how sounds are made on your instrument.
