Egyptian Day

In Year 3, they have been busy learning about Egypt and it is a fascinating subject.

Today everyone came to school dressed in the Egyptian theme from Mummies to Pharaohs.

The day started by learning about Mummies and why they performed the ritual of Mummification. Then it was time for a bit of writing but not the normal way. No today was all Egyptian so it was Hieroglyphs, the formal writing used in Ancient Egypt. I'm sure you have seen it before? It consists of symbols to represent the alphabet.

In the afternoon, Year 3 created necklaces and a cartouche pendant using paint.

Tomorrow will feel rather boring in comparison.
