Egyptian Day

“Year 3 had a fantastic day as Ancient Egyptians on Monday! We went back in time and became Egyptian civilians going about their everyday lives at a market. The children were able to carve scarab beetles in soap, make oil lamps, make an amulet and a canopic jar. They also mummified pegs and wrote their names on papyrus. In the afternoon, the children were split into groups and they had to prepare a play for the banquet for the pharaoh and his queen. Some children acted out a famous story called ‘The Wax Crocodile’ whilst others performed an Egyptian Dance to represent what people did around the River Nile. One group took on miming a story about Osiris and the last group acted out how a famous bull would predict their destiny. These children had to perform in front of the last group who were the royals. They had to serve a banquet of cheese, bread, grapes and even wine!
We had a great day and it was enjoyed by all.”
Thank you!!
