The Ancient Egyptians Planning (including an overview of the Earliest Civilisations)

The Ancient Egyptians (Intended For Y4)

Please note that this planning is intended for my OWN school but can be used as a basis for your own planning, free of charge.

This planning starts with a quick overview of the earliest civilisations (Ancient Sumer, Indus Valley, Shang Dynasty and Ancient Egypt) as stated in the National Curriculum. It then focuses on the Egyptians and compares them largely with the Ancient Romans as our children have learnt about them previously. This helps them to contextualise both sets of learning and see the similarities and differences, allowing them to gain some perspective on each civilisation and make judgements about their achievements and ways of life. This also comes with an Enquiry Framework document showing how each lesson fits together to answer the main statement about the topic, helping to keep it coherent and purposeful. There is also a rationale for the enquiry and alternative questions/statements that could be used or tweaked.
