Year 3 Learn About the River Nile

Posted on: 15 Sep 2014 by Weston Green School | Category: Key Stage 2, Year 3

This week in Year 3 the children have been learning about Ancient Egypt, with a particular focus on the River Nile and its importance.

The children started by working in groups to write down why they thought the River Nile was so important to the development and longevity of Ancient Egypt. These included transportation, food, water, trade, farming, and building. The children shared their ideas with each other and gave explanations to why each one was so important.

The purpose of this was for the children to understand how Ancient Egypt survived over hundreds of years. It also helps to provide a platform for them to extend their learning from. If you wish to support your child at home through this topic, then the BBC have several activities for the children on this topic. The British Museum also has a collection of 8 different mummies, though this collection is only available until the 30th November so try and catch it if you can and tickets can by clicking here.

Next week we move on to the farmers’ tools and techniques they used to make sure their crops were watered and ready for the harvest.
