Panamas had so much fun deepening our understanding of the Egyptians during Egyptian Day. Our classroom was filled with pharaohs, gods, queens and archaeologists all finding out about mummification, settlements, pyramids and Egyptian bread. We mummified a short pharaoh, as well as Pharaoh Pumpkinseeds, and we built pyramids in as many ways as we could. There was a lot of co-operation, and building a card pyramid really tests your resilience! Egyptian bread was very yummy!

Year Four Egyptologists explored ancient Egypt, looking for relics that could tell us about the Egyptians. We explored underground tunnels, where we found clues on the roof and walls. We dug in the sandy desert and chipped away at sandstone cliffs, hoping to uncover the secrets of the past. Once we found artefacts, we used textbooks and the internet to find out about them. Look how busy we were!

Our first TT Rock Stars Champion- practising for five minutes every day!

We have been learning about Ancient Egypt in lots of different ways. We have learnt how to write our names in hieroglyphics, and made a stunning, golden cartouche. We have tried moving great blocks of stone to build our pyramids (okay - so we used children on a desk), and have made a timeline to explore just how very far back 4500 years is!,

In science and Life Skills, we have been looking at healthy lifestyles. We have investigated the different food groups and looked at how to make a balanced diet. Did you know that over a third of a bottle of ketchup is sugar? A healthy lifestyle involves diet, exercise, sleep, fresh air and mental wellbeing.

Learning to dance like an Egyptian! We have thought about our Egyptian poses and worked with partners to make a canon.
