Walk like an Egyptian

6th March 2020

Years 3 and 4 had exciting learning with an Ancient Egyptian day on Friday. We started the day with an introductory talk all about Ancient Egypt followed by several fun activities. We looked at Tutankhamen artefacts, played an Egyptian game, translated hieroglyphs to measure in fingers, palms and cubits (Egyptian units of measurement) and completed an Egyptian quiz. After lunch, we saw a live mummification and learnt all about what happened in Ancient Egypt! It was a wonderful day and the children were all dressed as Egyptians.
