Major Figure: Cleopatra


Today we learnt about the final ruler of Ancient Egypt; Cleopatra. We created fact files about her life and significance and then broke into groups and asked, 'Was Cleopatra a good Queen?', making sure we backed up our answers with evidence


Here are some of our arguments...


"Yes because Egypt became more wealthy because she made good decisions"
-Luke, C1


"No because she wasn't very good at working with other people, like her brother. Also I think she was a bit mean to Caesar and Mark Anthony because she just wanted them to help her win back the throne!"
-Harry, C4


"Yes because she worked really hard. When she was young she learnt to read and write in Greek which was not common in those days"

-Thomas, C3


"I think she was amazing because it wasn't common for women to be leaders but she didn't let that stop her and she still worked really hard to make Egypt a better place!"

-Kayleb, C1


Now you've heard the arguments, what do you think?
