Talking and Listening in P4EL

Learners were exploring the Ancient Egyptian hierarchy and ‘social triangle’.

Pupils learned about some of the jobs such as viziers, craftsmen and scribes and how they were sorted based their importance.

At the end of our lesson pupils were asked whether they agreed with the social pyramid and were told to change the order if they wished. The children gave fabulous responses to explain their new order and made it clear that the slaves and farmers did not deserve to be so low in the order. Many pupils were vocal about how the pharaohs and viziers were too mean and made bad decisions.
