Egyptian Topic Launch

For the launch of our Egyptian topic in Year 4, the children took part in four activities throughout the day where they had the opportunity to learn more about the Egyptian way of life.  It was a great way for the children to be immersed in Ancient Egyptian life and start their learning by improving their knowledge of what life was like in Ancient Egypt.  They learnt about the pryamids and had a go at creating their own, using nets and lego. 

Next, they learnt about heiroglyphics, cracked codes and designed their own death masks. 

Then, after learning about the importance of symbols in Ancient Egypt, they made amulets using salt dough.  The children got to add these to their Egyptian jewellery which will be on display in the Year 4 tomb on Thursday afternoon.  We look forward to seeing you there!
