Ancient Egyptian Timeline

Year 4 ordered the main periods within Ancient Egypt chronologically  and they used their Maths skills to  work  out the duration of each period.  In two teams, they created a scaled timeline of 1cm = 1 year in order to show the entire period of history known as Ancient Egypt.

It really showed them just how long the Ancient Egyptian period lasted. Then,  the class also placed Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age (which they studied last year) onto the timeline so they could understand how these moments of history related to each other and the fact that although the Stone Age began approximately 5000 years before Ancient Egypt, these periods of time were occurring  concurrently in different parts of the world!

 For our first trip of the year, we had a fantastic day out visiting the British Museum. The children were amazed by the size and detail of the sculptures. They were also relieved that the mummies were not as scary as they thought they might be! A particular highlight was seeing the 5,500 year old remains of the Gebelein Man. He is considered to be of the best-preserved mummies in the world, after the heat and sand combined to keep his body largely    in tact. CAT scans on an interactive screen also enabled the children to look closely inside the body.

 On the first week back, Year 4 had a little taste of what it would be like to be an archaeologist as they had to carefully dig in order to uncover a selection Egyptian artefacts, using only tweezers and small brushes. Once these Egyptian artefacts were all discovered, they examined them carefully under magnifying glasses  to see what they could find out about each object.
