In Year 3, we have been learning about the ancient Egyptians. The children have been fascinated about this period of history and have enjoyed investigating artefacts from this time .
As part of our work, the children have identified the importance of the Nile River to this civilisation and all of the boys and girls enjoyed creating a model shaduf, which would have been used to take water out of the Nile River to water crops thousands of years ago!
Mummification proved to be a very popular topic and the children created excellent recounts of the process. They were fascinated to hear that the brain was removed through the nose!
Further learning will be carried out next week about the pharaoh Tutankhamun and the discovery of his tomb.
