Year 4

In Year 4, we're studying Ancient Egypt!

We had the chance to dig through the desert to try and find some ancient artefacts, like statues of the god Anubis, and a sarcophagus!

We were very lucky to have our own historian visit the children today. We started our day by learning all about Ancient Egypt history before playing a game which would have been played thousands of years ago in Egypt. We spent the afternoon re-enacting a mummification. It was very gruesome but very funny! We ended the day with chariot racing, though there was one catch... we had no chariots!

Well done to all the children who got stuck in with all the activities.

The children have really enjoyed learning about mummification. They have become experts and so decided to mummify some tomatoes to see what happened. We will update you in a few weeks!
We became newspaper reporters this week and to gather our information we interviewed Howard Carter. Howard Carter discovered the amazing tomb of Tutankhamun. Have a look below to see Howard in action.
