Year 3 Egyptian topic

    Hi teachers

    I am looking for inspiration and planning for a year 3 Egyptians topic. I have found a few texts but struggling to find any planning to adapt for my class of international students. Any planning for the following texts would be much appreciated: The Scarabs Secret, Marcy and the riddle of the Sphinx or Aa'Ats feather. I have previously taught the Egyptian Cinderella but not found it very motivating for the children.

    Also looking for any inspirational activities or ideas to motivate the class with the topic.

    Please email any planning or activities to: adam.roddy@hotmail.co.uk

    Thank you all in advance

    Why not try looking on Literacy Shed?

    We've used the Tadeo Jones video clip and looked at the archeologist Howard Carter - we wrote newspaper reports, character descriptions and planned an adventure story from it.

    We mummified fish and built a huge pyramid in the corner of the class room. Great fun.

    Little whitebait mummify quite well. We made a little cardboard sarcophagus for them too.

    Mummifying Gove would be much more fun.

    Seriously? Did you scrape out the innards and pack with salt/bicarb?
