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!

Images from the book Egyptian Cinderella cropped and sized to show to whole class on IWB. Images could also be stuck in books and used for inference or generating descriptive vocabulary. We did this text at the same time as our Ancient Egyptian topic but could also be used for retelling stories or familiar tales.

Egyptian Pharaohs Wordsearch Egypt Pharoahs Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Egyptian Pharaohs Wordsearch Egypt Pharoahs Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Egyptian Pharaohs'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

An introduction to Egypt

An introduction to Egypt

I made this resource to introduce Egypt to my class, as part of a topic on Ancient Egypt. The resource contains images and information about modern day Egypt, life in Ancient Egypt, the pharoahs, mummification, gods and the River Nile. I also included some suggested follow up activities that your class could do after looking at the presentation. An interesting resource for anyone studying Egypt.
