Building historical knowledge of how ancient civilisations impact on modern life.  STEAM  (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Maths) learning really is 5000 years old!   Bringing history & inquiry alive with fascinating artefacts, books & e-learning.

In this programme we will discover the hidden secrets of Ancient Egypt through fascinating books, stories, hands-on artefacts, videos, websites and articles.

We will learn about the history of the pyramids, tombs, mummification, rituals, gods and religion, food and drink, fashion, music and entertainment, building techniques, pharaohs, slaves, the hierarchy of Egyptian society, inventions, gender diversity and of course read and write in hieroglyphs. There is even an opportunity to email an expert and send your questions to an Egyptologist and research librarian in a London museum.

Through STEAM learning children will identify personal topics of interest for their own research and passion projects.
