Year 2 IPC Topic ‘Stories People Tell’

This term, Year 2 have started their exciting learning journey to explore the life and times of the ancient Egyptians. To help children understand the time frame of the Egyptians, they began the unit by drawing a time line of their own lives.

The fact that the Egyptians lived nearly three thousand years ago is quite a contrast when you are six or seven! As an entry point, a range of different Egyptian artefacts, including papyrus and statues, were placed on tables and children thought of questions they would like to find out about the objects. They were intrigued by pictures of mummification and fascinated by the use of hieroglyphics.

Most recently, we have been finding out about the role of pharaohs and thoroughly enjoyed making a pharaoh’s collar and head piece. Our English unit ‘Myths and Legends’ runs perfectly beside our IPC work and children have been finding out about the fate of poor Rhodopis at the hands of the evil pirates! As this is a Talk for Write unit, we have been learning actions to go with the story so that the new vocabulary and sequence is secure in the children’s minds. We are now at the stage where children have innovated the original text and have drawn their own story maps ready for becoming the creators of their very own Egyptian Myth.
