As a surprise to the children we held an Egyptian Day in class to mark the start of our Topic – Awesome Egyptians!
The children took part in a carousel of activities using both of our classrooms. They designed a death mask, filled out what they alread knew about Egypt and what they wanted to know about, played an Egyptian version of Snakes and Ladders, wrot their names in Hieroglyphs and went on an archealogical dig to find buried treasure. The children also had chance to explore in a tomb using torches.
Here are selection of pictures to show you what they did. A great day was had by all.
