Year 3 and 4

 We have all had an amazing start to a new school year! The children have worked enthusiastically and thoroughly enjoyed learning about life in Ancient Egypt. Their learning involved many exciting activities, including writing a newspaper report based on the mysterious death of Pharaoh Tutankhamun, they made clay cartouches with their names painted in Egyptian Hieroglyphics, they became Ancient Egyptian embalmers and mummified a banana. They also became Egyptian Pharaohs, using oil pastels to draw their own Egyptian crown on a photo of their heads. We were also very impressed with the children's fantastic Egyptian landscape paintings in the style of William Turner. In addition, we would  like to thank the children and parents for their brilliant and highly creative homework projects.
