Egyptian Workshops

 Yesterday, Year 3 had a lot of fun learning about Ancient Egypt.  Firstly, we formed a long line to represent the River Nile, before learning about the different areas in Egypt.  We learnt about the animal gods such as Bastet the cat god and Horus the falcon god.  Using drama, we discovered the various jobs the Ancient Egyptians had – jewellery makers, craftsmen, fishermen and scribes.   One child was lucky enough to become the Pharaoh, although they did end up being mummified and found in the pyramid by Howard Carter.  The most disgusting fact of the day was that they used a hook to remove the brain through the nose!
