UKS2 - Year 5 and 6

Our ILP for term 3 is Pharaohs

Please find the support documents below. Don't forget to go to the library to get some of the wonderful books recommended! 

Let’s travel back 5000 years to ancient Egypt, cruising along the Nile and entering a world of mysteries, curses and mummies. 
This half term, we are going to learn first-hand about the gruesome, yet fascinating, process of mummification. We’ll write a report about Howard Carter’s famous discovery and use different sources to research Tutankhamun’s tomb. We’ll also consider whether it was right to open Tutankhamun’s tomb, or whether it should have been left as it was. Our work will inspire us to write some exciting Egyptian mystery stories and non-fiction books and the internet will provide us with information to make fact files. We’ll draw Egyptian artefacts in detail, focusing on symbols and design features. Studying historical sources will help us learn more about the Pharaohs, the Egyptian gods and ancient religious beliefs. We’ll find out about the food that was eaten at the time, make some Egyptian bread and use recycled materials to build model tombs.
At the end of the ILP, we’ll think about how the ancient Egyptians contributed to world history, then create and present a guide about ancient Egyptian sites. 




Between 8:15am-8:40am, we offer pre-teach sessions to children in Year 5 and 6. During these sessions we will be teaching the children the concepts and skills prior to a lesson on the subject. The idea is to give the student a 'preview' of the lesson that will allow them to put their knowledge to work during the lesson. Pre-teaching can provide students with more knowledge and confidence when approaching a new topic. This can help to increase engagement and reduce frustration. Your child will recieve a letter if they have been invited to these sessions.
