Reading Prompts

Writing weekly focus – Non-fiction work based on ‘Ancient Egypt’.


Over the next two weeks we will be creating a piece of non-fiction writing based on the topic of Ancient Egypt. Ancient Egypt is our topic for the summer term and includes lots of exciting opportunities to engage in activities right across the curriculum. You will need to:


  • Follow the learning links to research information
  • Make notes about important facts, dates, people and places that you think could be important for your presentation
  • Use a mind map to organise your information into sensible chunks
  • Create a front cover with a heading, author name and appropriate picture
  • Create a contents page to tell readers which page to find information on
  • Create a glossary to tell readers what important words mean
  • Use headings, sub-headings, pictures with captions, diagrams with labels, past tense and 3rd person writing to make a non-fiction book about all the things you learn over the next two weeks


There are lots of links on the Year 3/Alexandra web page which will provide you with information about Ancient Egypt.


This week it will be useful to find out:

  1. Where in the world Ancient Egypt was?
  2. When the period of Ancient Egypt was?
  3. Who some of the important rulers of Ancient Egypt were (they were called Pharoahs)?
  4. What pyramids were and why they were built?
  5. Why was the River Nile important for Ancient Egyptians?


Make your notes on a piece of paper but try to use your own words to write new sentences rather than just copy someone else’s work on a website or in a book. Remember, next week we will give you some more Ancient Egypt areas to research and  write about so this is just a starter.


You can also start thinking about how you want to show your work. It could be done electronically in a Powerpoint, Keynote or Book Creator App or it could be done on paper and then joined together with sticky tape or staples.


 You can use this Youtube link to Red Ted Art to make a mini book from one piece of A4 paper. You can then do your own illustrations and add your own text to make your own book about ‘Ancient Egypt’.      



Don’t forget to upload your work to the Anson blog - We love to see how hard you are working!

Please access Summer Term Week 8 (w/c 15.06.20) Fractions. There are videos and activities to do.



There are four lessons each week

There is a video with a teacher giving you instructions and then an activity to download. You can download all the activities for this week below.

Home Activity:


Using fruit or vegetables cut a whole fruit into an equal number of pieces. Separate them and write the fractions you have made. Perhaps you have cut a banana into 4 pieces. That means each part is ¼ of the whole (or one quarter in words). Now try adding some quarters together. For example what is ¼ + 2/4?


Try the same with halves, thirds, sixths, eighths and tenths.
