The Ancient Egyptian ‘Book of the Dead’

In Year 4, we are learning about the Ancient Egyptian ‘Book of the Dead’. This was a document filled with prayers to help the Egyptian people reach the afterlife when they died. The children have been reading lots of these prayers in their English lessons. This is to help them gather ideas to write a ‘Book of the Dead’ poem!

Look out for the final pieces of work, which we will be writing on special paper.
