Walk like an Egyptian… *Updated*

“On Wednesday, Year 6 were learning about a new topic about the Egyptians.  I thought that it was going to be a really really good topic because I have been to Egypt before and thought learning about all the pyramids their life (hundreds and hundreds of years ago) would be quite interesting.

So, on Wednesday afternoon, we came in from lunch and Miss Hall began explaining what our new topic was going to be. Then, our task was to design an Egyptian mask in out sketch book. Excitingly, in a few weeks, when we finish our mask designs, we are going to make our masks out of clay.”  – Benji

“Today, we did something really fun; we did a workshop on the Egyptians. We worked in groups of 5 and we learnt loads of new stuff. For example, that dead people would be mummified and that the Egyptians loved cats and hated dogs. Some people might think the bodies would rot; others (like the Egyptians) knew that they would be preserved.” – Charley-Mae
