This week we have had an exciting topic launch….Mr Egypt led a workshop for us. He is a real life Egyptologist and works for the Egyptian antiquities department.
We 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. We learnt to read, write and carry out calculations using hieroglyphics.
We danced for the Pharaoh and handled many artefacts, including a 4000 Year Old oil lamp and a ring which had belonged to a Pharaoh.
Mr Egypt kept us all on the edge of our seats and truly inspired the children at the start of our topic, what an amazing day!
