Ancient Egyptian Immersion Day

To launch our new History topic, the Owls class started the term with an Ancient Egyptian immersion day. The children first had to ‘excavate’ some artefacts from an archaeological dig, examine them and make predictions about them. In Maths, we investigated how many cubes we’d need to make different sizes of pyramids. We then tried to construct our own pyramids using spaghetti and marshmallows. We finished the day by doing a ‘draw along’ to create our own Cleopatra portraits. Lots of enthusiasm from the children and a fantastic start to the year!
