ANCIENT EGYPTIAN DAY!
Class 8 had a fantastic Egyptian Day! At the start of the day, the children were all really excited to show off their outfits to their friends. Their first task of the day was the PYRAMID CHALLENGE. The children were given different materials to try and make a pyramid. Some children used Lego and Duplo while others used Shreddies or Mini Shredded Wheat.
After break, they became archaeologists and used cocktail sticks and tweezers to excavate a chocolate chip cookie. Freddy won the prize for cleanest and neatest chocolate chips and the children were all pleased they could eat their cookie at the end. Next Class 8 experienced an Egyptian Banquet and tasted food that the Egyptians would have eaten like flattened bread, dates, honey, melon, grapes and spiced chicken.
In the afternoon they made papyrus paper with Miss Watson. The day ended with an Express Event in the hall where the children Walked Like Egyptians in their costumes and showed parents their work from throughout the day.
This term Class 8 are learning about the ancient Egyptians! We have been researching the mummification process and finding all about the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb. We have also been making Ancient Egyptian God Top Trumps and Ancient Egyptian Nemes (headdresses). Here are some photos of what we have been up to...
