Yr3 Eygption Day
Date: 05 May 2017
On Friday 5th May, Steve and Sally from Portals from the Past, who were real explorers, came to talk to Year 3 about Ancient Egypt. First they taught us the geography and showed us how Ancient Egyptians walked, danced and posed for pictures. Then we split into three smaller groups and all had a go at handling artifacts, answering quiz questions and measuring each other for our sarcophagi in ‘royal cubits,’ ‘palms’ and ‘fingers.’ In the afternoon, the Pharaoh’s food was poisoned and he had to be mummified before his burial in a life-size sarcophagus. We all took part in the funeral procession before waving goodbye to Steve and Sally after an extremely entertaining day!
