Look at the following website about Ancient Egypt:
Use the sub-headings at the side of the page to pick what you want to read about.
Spend some time reading the information and write down 10 interesting facts that you have found out. Did you find the answers to any of your questions?
Just for fun...
The object is to “hit” your opponent’s ships on their grid by trying to guess where they are hiding.
How to play:
1. Start by making 2 grids that are sectioned 11 by 11. The top row is marked 1-10, the left side column is marked A-J.
2. Each player gets the following:
carrier (5 squares)
battleship (4 squares each)
destroyer (2 squares each)
cruiser (3 squares each)
submarine (3 squares)
3. Both players outline their ships on their grid; the game goes on just like the board game.
4. Each player takes it in turn to guess the other player’s coordinates. Make sure to mark down any hits and misses.
5. Play is over when all of one player’s ships have been sunk. Good luck!

Watch the video and do the quiz about apostrophes for possession.
Once completed use the pictures from Tuesday to write down 3-6 sentences with apostrophes for possession in.
E.g. The pyramid’s tip is as pointy as a knife!
Today we’re going to be looking at hieroglyphics which were the Ancient Egyptians way of writing. Look through the slide share and make a few notes about hieroglyphics.
Now you have looked through the slide share, print out the template of a Cartouche (bottom of the page) or draw one on a plain sheet of paper.
Write your name in hieroglyphics inside the Cartouche. I would sketch it with a pencil first and then pick to either, colour in using pencil crayons, paint or pastels.
Today we will travel back to the Ancient Egyptians time and look at why the River Nile was so crucial to life in this time. Watch the video below and make some notes about what you would see walking along the Nile and why certain parts were so important.https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z3rwmp3
Now you've watched it write down a paragraph, as if you were walking along the River Nile in Ancient Egyptian times. What did you see, what did you touch and what did you use. Try to use the SPAG from this week such as commas in a list and apostrophe for possession in your work.
As I was wandering along the Nile I saw some of the farmer's crops, he was able to water them, as he had a useful machine called the shaduf.
Today we’re going to have a bit of fun using the hieroglyphics we learnt yesterday.
Use the slide share to help you. You are going write a message to someone in your house and get them to work out what is says using the hieroglyphics sheet. (Linked at the bottom of the page). If you want, write a nice message to each person in your family to cheer them up, or start a conversation with them by asking them a question in hieroglyphics.
