Our topic this term is Ancient Egypt. Our WOW experience to launch our topic by exposing the children to a real life demonstration of the mummification process. The gruesome process unfolded in front of their very eyes. Following this, the children will complete a piece of procedural writing linked to this launch.
As part of our topic, the children experienced a visit from the famous Egyptologist Howard Carter (or a historian acting as Howard Carter). The history of years gone by was brought alive through his presentation, a game involving hieroglyphics, some archaeology, fact finding and a code breaking task using hieroglyphs. We had so much fun!
