Ancient Egypt - Dan Tastic Education

Our topic for the Summer Term is Ancient Egypt.

As part of this topic we will be learning about why the River Nile was important to Ancient Egyptian settlements and society. We will be looking at pharaohs and the pyramids and recognising how the pyramids are signification to historians understanding of the past. We will be looking at mummification and hieroglyphics and comparing Ancient Egypt with other early civilisations. In art we will be creating collages and using clay to create Egyptian masks and pendants.
