Ancient Egyptian Day 21/03/22
As part of their Ancient Egyptian topic, Year 4 travelled back in time to experience life as an Egyptian. Mr Egypt (Phillip Harris), an Egyptologist who lives in Egypt exploring the tombs and pyramids, provided an outstanding workshop. The children had a fun packed day, not just learning about pharaohs but also the life of ordinary Egyptians and what it was like for children in Ancient Egypt. They also learnt to read, write and carry out calculations using hieroglyphics. To embrace the full experience, the children engaged in role play and enjoyed capering for ‘Tutankhamun’, before handling riveting real artefacts which Mr Egypt had brought from the tombs of Egyptian pharaohs! Mr Egypt kept the children on the edge of their seats with his real-life, inspiring stories and truly brought their learning to life. What an amazing day!
