Year 4 become Ancient Egyptians

On Monday 17th June the Year 4 girls dressed up and took part in a fun, absorbing and interactive History workshop which introduced them to the fascinating and enigmatic world of the ancient Egyptians.
They learned about what happened following the death of a mighty Pharaoh, including tomb building, the mummification process, burial ceremonies and, finally, the crowning of the new Pharaoh. They also did some Maths the Egyptian way and learned how to measure in cubits. The girls discovered fascinating facts during an Egyptian-themed quiz and played Hounds and Jackals, an easy Egyptian board game. All round it was thumbs up for a fantastic day topped up by the beautiful costumes the girls were wearing.
