Autumn Term 1 Topic – ‘Awesome Egyptians’



Hook with a book: 'The Red Pyramid' by Rick Riordan

Guided Reading: 'Jake Atlas and the Tomb of the Emerald Snake' by Rob Lloyd Jones



         Ancient Egypt. A fascinating world and a great Topic to start with! Children are invited to look at some of the Pharaohs and the development of the pyramids, as well as the mythology that surrounded this early civilisation. They will investigate the role the Nile had in allowing this civilisation to flourish and examine daily life of common Egyptians. A great opportunity to build children’s knowledge of the period when the Ancient Egyptians were powerful in the world, to discover how the Ancient Egyptian civilisation came to an end and also to learn about the evidence of Ancient Egypt that exists in modern Egypt today.
