With Ancient Egypt spanning over 3000 years of history it’s often difficult as a teacher to know where to begin, there’s no need to worry with this school workshop as our practitioners will take your students on a journey through all the important bits.
Isolated from the world by mountains and desert, Ancient Egypt could have been forgotten to the past and yet its very isolation enabled it to flourish and fascinate. Through a series of interactive activities our practitioners will utilise your student’s imagination to travel through the timeline of Ancient Egypt.
Your students will join Pharaoh Khufu as he struggles to construct the Great Pyramid of Giza. Jumping forward in time, they will then recreate, analyse and explore the death of Tutankhamen, helping Howard Carter to find the cause of his mysterious death. They will then help Cleopatra to defend her country from the might of the Roman Army by wrapping her up in a carpet!

Finally, your students will be put to the test with the Time Line Challenge. Will your students conquer Ancient Egypt? It's impossible not to with this fun, informative and interactive workshop.

Imagining History Workshops:
History is all around us. Each of our fully interactive half-day sessions uses this concept to immerse the children within the historical period, utilising drama and performance techniques to bring the people, places and events of the past to life for your students.

Our KS2 workshops are led by two practitioners who will weave a tapestry of time for the children to explore and bring your topic to life with the all-important Wow factor.
