Ancient Egyptians Topic - UKS2

Ancient Egyptians Topic - UKS2

This is a seven week unit of work based on the Ancient Egyptians. I have taught this unit of work to my Y5 class and they loved the range of activities. It includes literacy based, maths based and practical tasks linked to the contents of a tomb, the mummification process and a Diamond Nine activity about the River Nile. I have attached my medium term planning, all slides for the unit and resources to accompany them. Differentiation is evident in the planning and slides. I hope you find this useful!

How successful was the Roman army?

How successful was the Roman army?

In this lesson students challenge an interpretation made by the History Channel. The lesson is set-up by students watching a minute long introduction to a documentary. They then spend the lesson trying to test the interpretation presented. The end result is that students write a letter to the History Channel advising whether their statement was right or wrong. I taught this lesson to some able Y6 students but it work equally well for Y7 and Y8 if desired. Example student work attached.
