Reading Prompts


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


Over the next week 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 we want to think about how you can present your research:


You could use an app like Book Creator, Keynote, Prezi or Powerpoint or you can create a real paper book full of your excellent writing, pictures and diagrams.

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’.     


First, make sure you are clear about what the heading will be for each page. Then write some fantastic sentences about each heading in your planning work. Decide what images you are going to include to make it interesting for your reader. Could you draw your own pictures and diagrams, copy some from another book or webpage or cut some out of a magazine that is finished with? Then decide what words are tricky for readers who don’t know anything about Ancient Egypt – highlight these to remind yourself to write them in bold in your presentation and also create a ‘Glossary’ to explain what these words mean.


A complete presentation/book should include:


  1. A front cover with a Heading, picture, author’s name and illustrator’s name
  2. A contents page showing which page number to look on
  3. At least 4 more different pages with their own headings about Ancient Egypt
  4. A glossary to explain tricky words
  5. A back page with another picture and short blurb.

Your Headings could include:


  • Where Ancient Egypt was – current continent, neighbouring countries, rivers, seas and oceans
  • When the period of Ancient Egypt was – how long ago was it and how long did it last
  • Pharoahs (The rulers of Ancient Egypt) - Khufu, Hatshepsut, Rameses II, Cleopatra
  • Pyramids – different types, how they were constructed, what they were used for
  • The River Nile – it’s importance and helpful features for the Ancient Egyptians (This great BBC documentary on the River Nile is a helpful thing to watch and talk about with your grown up - )
  • Inventions – what did the Ancient Egyptians make to help them be more successful?
  • Food and drink – what did they eat and drink?
  • Farming – what did they grow and what did they use the crops for?
  • Art and jewellery – what art did they create and why did they create it?
  • Language and writing – the Ancient Egyptians had a written picture language called ‘hieroglypics’.
  • Gods and beliefs – Who did they believe in and what did they do to honour their gods?
  • Clothing – what did they wear everyday or on special occasions?



Make your notes on a piece of paper and 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.



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