Hello and welcome to Year 6!
Our topic this term is ‘Could I survive in ancient Egypt?’. We will be learning all about life in ancient Egypt: Why did they build pyramids? Who were the pharaohs? How can we read hieroglyphics? How did they make mummies? We will be paying special attention to all of the exciting parts of their history! Below is a copy of our knowledge organiser.

In English, we are reading 'Secrets of a Sun King' by Emma Carroll. We will be using this story to inspire our writing and we will start by writing newspaper reports about the discovery of Tutankhamen.
