Making a mummy!
We had great fun today making a real life mummy! First we watched a video all about how the Ancient Egyptians made a mummy. We made notes which we turned into instructions. We then used our instructions to help us to turn one of our classmates into a mummy (although we did decide to leave their brains and organs intact!).
After watching some BBC learning clips on how the pyramids were built we had a go at building some of our own with different resources.
Where is Egypt?
After putting the Ancient Egyptians on a timeline to compare with other events we have learnt about in history, we then used Google Earth and atlases to find out exactly where Egypt is in the world.
Play In A Day
What an amazing day we had with Ben today teaching us all about the Ancient Egyptians through us learning and performing a play. We all had a role in the hour long performance which taught us about Egyptian kings and mummification, daily life and the gods and goddesses. We are so excited about learning more next half term!
