Year Three Wow Day
Year Three Wow Day!
Year Three looked fabulous as they came to school for their Ancient Egyptian Wow Day; there were pharaohs, kings, queens and even a few mummies wrapped in bandages!
The day started with some decoding of Hieroglyphic messages. The children then used what they had learnt to write their name on a cartouche, as did all the rich and powerful of Ancient Egypt. After lunch the class went mummification mad, trying to create the best mummy. Luckily no organs were removed they were simply given a toilet roll to work with! The results varied in success but great fun was had by all. The children also created some artwork that turned them all into Egyptian royalty with head dresses and necklaces!
The children were extremely enthusiastic about the topic and it was a great way to kick start their learning.
