Egyptian Learning in Lancaster and Snowflakes

In Terms 1 and 2, Snowflakes and Lancaster classes have been looking at the Ancient Egyptians as our History topic. We have covered lots of things and were hoping to visit the Bristol museum to take part in their Egyptian workshops.  Unfortunately, we were unable to take part in this and as an alternative Mrs Noel-Smith planned an Ancient Egyptian day in school for both classes.

This took place on Friday, 8th December, we mixed both the classes together in groups of four to co-operate and work together. First the children ‘embalmed and buried’ a mummy. Then they ate an Egyptian feast, including food the children had cooked themselves, followed by a mummy race. In the afternoon the day finished with a variety of Egyptian crafts.
