This week we explored education and democracy in Ancient Egypt. We learned that boys from wealthy families had the best education. Many boys would be taught by their father to be a builder so that they could help building the pyramids. If they weren't good enough, they would be sent out of the village away from their family forever!
"The Pharaoh was in charge in Egypt, which is similar to in England today because we have a Prime Minister. However, we vote for our Prime Minister because we live in a democracy, and in Ancient Egpyt they didn't vote."
"If I lived in Ancient Egypt, I would want to be a soldier because everyone would think I was a hero! It might be a bit dangerous though"
