3B’s Egyptian Adventure
In 3B this half term we have been on an Egyptian adventure. We have learnt all about life in ancient Egypt, Gods and Goddesses along with mummification, King Tutankhamun and Howard Carter and finally we learnt about the River Nile.
It has been a whistle stop tour going back in time, to a time when a weed called papyrus was used for lots of different things. We also found that scribes developed a system of early writing called hieroglyphics. Here is some of our information. We hope you enjoy finding out about this brilliant civilisation.

The River Nile is The longest river in the world!
The River Nile is the longest river in the world! The river starts in Burundi. Where the river Nile starts is not certain. The Nile is 4132 miles long [6650km]. The water in the Nile comes from the White Nile and the Blue Nile. The people thanked Hapi for the flood.
