Claire studied at The Open University and has a level three diploma in crystal healing. She has also been attuned to reiki levels 1 and 2.

I have set the resources out by task rather than by days or weeks to make it more flexible for various levels of structure, timetables, time and children’s attention spans and abilities. I have also added some suggested activities or additional ideas.

1. Early civilisation

Information on the Nile River and the early civilisation that grew up around it.

2. The Cat of Bubastes

A free audiobook that can be listened to online or downloaded for free.

“G.A. Henty’s “tale of ancient Egypt” tells the story of Amuba, prince of the Rebu, who is taken captive when his people are conquered by the Egyptians, and then becomes the servant and companion of Chebron, son of the high priest of Osiris. A mystery unfolds as the lads find evidence of a murderous conspiracy within the ranks of the priesthood; but they must then flee for their lives when they unintentionally kill the cat selected as the successor to the Cat of Bubastes, one of the most sacred animals of Egypt. Amuba and Chebron are strong, courageous, and resourceful – but will this be enough to carry them beyond the long reach of the power of Egypt? (Summary by D. Leeson)”

The Nilometer on Roda Island at Cairo, Egypt, was built in 861 AD to measure the river's seasonal rise and fall. Too little water presaged famine while too much meant flooding.
