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:

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:
