Ancient Egypt Day
The children had fantastic fun on our special day. They all made a magnificent effort to dress the part and took part in a drama exploring finding objects in the tomb of King Tutankhamun. They explored Egyptian number system and hieroglyphics. They were able to practise their skills making a mummy. Using the computer, they made deductions about objects and then researched about the journey to the after life.
