Term 2 - Awful Egyptians


Welcome to term 2 everyone! The best term of all. Do you want to know why? Because it's Christmas!!!! 


We will be continuing our topic of the ancient Egyptians, learning more about their weird and wonderful antics. We have already learnt about the process of mummification. Take a look!


Step 1: Wash the body with palm oil and water from the River Nile. 



Step 2: Take out the internal body organs (except the heart) and place the liver, lungs, intestines and stomach into canopic jars to dry. 



Step 3: Take out the brain through the nostrils using a white-hot hook. 


Step 4: Cover the body with natrol salt and leave it to dry for 40 days. 



Step 5: After the 40 days, remove the natron and stuff the body with straw, dried grass or linen. 



Step 6: Wrap the body in linen fabric and cover the organs in the appropriate amulet. For finishing touches, cover the head with a death mask.  





Step 7: Finally, place the mummy in a sarcophagus and take to the pyramid. 


In science we will be learning about classifying materials and even conducting some of our own experiments. WARNING: This could get messy!


In art and D.T we will be designing and making our own Christmas stockings. You never know, some presents might magically appear in them!


In P.E we will be having football with Andy, so be sure to always have your football kit in school on a Friday. 


In ICT we will be using a database to create our own Christmas shopping list. 



Term 1 - Our topic this term is called Gift of the Nile, as we are going to be looking at Egypt with a focus on the River Nile. We will be researching how and why the River Nile is so important to the Egyptians and using our research in a professional looking PowerPoint. We will also be looking at the geography of Egypt, including the physical and human features and how it has changed since the Ancient Egyptians roamed the land. 


In science we will be looking at light and sound and creating our investigations. We may even get to use our new data loggers!

In art we will be creating our own batik using wax and we will be using the Ancient Egyptians as inspiration. 

In P.E we will be practising our rugby skills and in inside PE we will be doing some fitness circuits!

BUT...the most exciting thing to look forward to is our class assembly. Once again, Ancient Egypt will be our inspiration but I won't give away too much just yet!
