In this unit, the children travel back to 3,000 years before the birth of Christ to learn about the Ancient Egyptians. Having previously learnt about the achievements of the Stone Age, this provides the children with great opportunities for comparative work and to form judgments on the advancements of other societies and civilisations around the world. It also stretches their understanding of concurrence and that different people lived around the world at the same time. Children will discover that the Ancient Egyptians were united under one ruler, and the empire lasted until 30BC, when the Romans conquered Egypt. They will return to the concept of significance when examining what the Egyptians achieved and its impact on the world today.
