Yr3/4 Ancient Egyptian Day
Our Ancient Egyptian Day – 24th November
On Thursday, Years 3 and 4 stepped back in time to Ancient Egypt. Dressed in fantastic Egyptian costumes the children participated in ancient crafts such as perfume making, scarab beetle carving, making canopic jars and writing on a cartouche using hieroglyphics.
During the afternoon the children took part in drama storytelling and performed in front of the royal court and were served banquet feast from the royal household’s servants.
