A history focus this term studying two ancient civilisations. We will be looking at important geographical and historical features of the period/place as well as what life would have been like for the Ancient Egyptians and comparing this to the life of the Ancient Greeks.

The homework projects will be to research Ancient Egyptian Gods and then later in the term to create a game based on your knowledge of the Ancient Greek culture.
