Five thousand years ago, the Ancient Egyptians lived in Egypt.

River Nile

The River Nile flows threw Egypt. The Nile was very special to the Egyptians and it was so important that they treated the Nile as a living thing.


There are three pyramids in Egypt and they were built in the city of Ciaro. The Pyramid of Khufu at Giza is the largest Egyptian pyramid.  Most Ancient Egyptian pyramids were built as tombs for pharaohs (rulers of Ancient Egypt) and their families. To date, over 130 pyramids have been discovered in Egypt.


Gods and Godesses

Ancient Egyptians believed in more than 2,000 Gods and Godesses! They had gods for everything, from dangers to chores! Each had different responsibilities and needed to be worshipped so that life could be kept in balance.



Men, Women and even Children wore make-up in Egyptian times.  The eye-paint was usually green (made from copper) or black (made from lead). As well as offering protection from the sun, the Egyptians believed make-up had magical healing powers, too!



The afterlife was very important to the Egyptians. They believed that by preserving a dead person’s body, which they did through the process of mummification – their soul would live on in the after-life forever.

  1. Wash the body with scented palm wine and then wash it off with water from the Nile.
  2. Now take out all the organs except the heart.
  3. Stuff the body with linen and then cover it with natron (salt).
  4. Then you need to leave the body for forty days.
  5. Wash the body again using water from the Nile then cover it in oils to make it look nice.
  6. Rap it in linen bandages and place it in it’s tomb.

As the silent sunset kissed the horizon, the slithering sea  swayed  towards the soft sand. The silky sand tickled my toes as the fluffy, white clouds flew towards me beckoning me to stay on the beautiful beach. The sleepy sun layed down his heavy head onto his cloudy cotton pillow. The fluffy  white cloud stretched out towards the sun like children hugging their parents. as the waves whooshed towards me a strong blast of salt caught my tongue and melted in my throat. The tawny sunset was settling down like a baby going to sleep. As the sea  swished towards me, the sand engulfed my body. The ocean, that was crystal, clear, hugged my body as if it is my friend.

Tristan’s amazing sunset

As I stepped on to the soft silky sand, my toes felt the lovely warm sunset. The beautiful warm sunset kissed my skin as I came closer. Looking up at the sunset, I saw the velvety soft clouds gently being carried away. The rippling sound of the tawny sea was washed away in the distance. The sun was like a shimmering glitter ball in the blue sky. The sand was swallowed into the sea like a whale after it’s prey. As the sunset, the wind which came from the sea blew a sweet tune into my ear.

The sleeping sunset

As I entered the glimmering beach, the sweet, salty air melted into my nose. When I stepped on the silky, soft sand it beckoned me to stay. Looking into the distance, the memorizing sunset was sleeping on the horizon. Looking downwards, I saw the sea swaying and washing away the sand castles and footprints that had printed into the sand. As I strolled along the sand, which engulfed my feet, the sun was shining like a dazzling diamond crashing along the shore.

As the silent sunset reached for the sweet horizon, the calm clouds gazed upon me. The silky soft sand sat beneath my toes and begged me to stay. In the tawny sunset, the gold path on the rippling , warm horizon reached for me and beckoned me to come. The taste of tongue tingling salt water hit me and hugged me along the way. The warmth ran to me and squeezed me with all it’s might. The wet sand grabbed my leg;it was like quicksand. Sand castles melted in the magical marine water. Swoosh! The turquoise water, which swallowed the sand, was trying to hug me and take me to the world of sea creatures.

As the blinding sunset disappeared in the swaying waves, the light streamed slowly upon my skin. Engulfing my feet, the crumbling sand threaded through my toes and the sun sunk beneath its warm bed. Fluffy clouds surrounded me while the sun blossomed in the daylight. The sweet sound of flowing waves swam up to me and begged me to stay. As the sunset faded into the navy sky, I could smell the salty sea swimming towards me. As the sea swished towards me it swallowed the golden sand. The ocean, that is crystal clear, lay in its damp bed.



Lucas’ magical sunset

As the silent dusky sunset met the horizon, the swaying waves hit onto the sandy shores. The fluffy clouds looked like cotton candy whispering for me to stay. Wonderful waves covered my feet like water being poured on me. The water, which was crystal clear, crashed onto the shore. Salty sea water smelt like a tall bottle of salt. The salty taste invaded my mouth. The imprints of the feet vanished; the sea crashed away the evidence of the footprints. The waves were crashing like they were in a rugby match. The suns rays were like a path leading to a nice paradise. Sand castles melted away as the ocean grabbed them and took them away.

At twilight, as the sun set, the warmth from the lowering sun hugged my skin. Soft sand tickled my toes, as I gazed up to the fluffy, floating clouds. As the sea engulfed the golden shore, it whispered begging me to stay. The taste of sea salt stung my tongue. The evidence of a day at the beach was washed away by the sea. Sand castles melted into the calm, blue water. The sea, which was crystal clear, washed over my feet and sent a tickle racing down my spine. As the chirping seagulls sang a melody, they swayed past me.The sun was as hot as a burning light bulb evacuating the sky.
