New Topic – The Ancient Egyptians

 

Our new topic for May/June is ‘The Ancient Egyptians’. It is one of our favourite topics and we hope you will enjoy learning about it too. It may be a little different discovering this topic at home, but we hope that you will enjoy the activities we set for you every week and perhaps you could do a little research of your own.

 

When Mrs Boyd and Mrs Drysdale were in CPS, they had to make a project about Ancient Egypt. Perhaps you could keep all of your worksheets/activities together to make your own Egyptian project and maybe you can do some extra research of your own? We know you have lots of great ideas of your own too!

 

We have given you a few video links below which are crammed full of facts and information about Ancient Egypt to give you a little 'taster' of what is to come...it really is a fabulous topic!
