3rd Class have started off 2022 by going back in time…not to 2021, but to the time of the Ancient Egyptians! This is a topic that we have been very excited to learn about all year. We are all working as researchers and independently researching and exploring the life of Ancient Egyptians as we create our own projects to showcase what we have uncovered.

Alongside our independent research we have also integrated Ancient Egyptian themes into our classwork, for example we explored the properties of pyramids as 3D shapes in maths, took on the role of Tutankhamun in drama and learned how papyrus was made in English. We even made our own mock papyrus and wrote codes in hieroglyphics for other classes to try decipher.

You can see two pictures below which highlight only two small examples of the work that we have completed.
