Egyptian Day

Friday 9th February | 5 comments

Year 3 had a fantastic Egyptian Day this week! So many pupils made such an effort with their costumes so thank you to parents and carers that helped with that!

We started the day making our Tutankhamun inspired paper mache death masks. It was fair to say that the year 3 classrooms were very messy that morning!

Whilst children were making their death masks, groups of 15 children went with Mr Beevers and Mrs Sloan to cook up Cleopatra’s favourite sweet treat! Children mixed flour, water and fruit to make the dough. Then, sweet honey was drizzled over them after they had been baked.

In the afternoon, we learnt some great Egyptian facts. Did you know King Tutankhamun was only 10 years old when he became the ruler of Egypt!

To finish our day off, we learnt about Ancient Egyptian dance and discussed how they moved and why they liked to dance. Finally, the children had some fun and danced to ‘Walk like An Egyptian’ by the Bangles. After some pleading and begging, we also danced to Madness and Cotton Eyed Joe.

The children had such a fun day and so did the teachers!

We would also like to say a massive well done to Khushi, Isaac, Jacob and Gracie for their special mentions today in assembly. You all should be very proud of yourselves!

We hope everyone has a lovely week off and see you on Monday 19th February!

Mr Beevers & Miss Micklethwaite.

    What a fun day! Phoebe has loved telling me about everything you got up to. (And I’ve had The Bangles stuck in my head for most of the week!)
