3 Red’s AMAZING Egyptian Day!

Today we had an amazingly fun day. We started off the day researching the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb, we used our teamwork and creativity to create posters showcasing our knowledge. Afterwards we learnt about the Egyptian numeral system, we used this system to calculate a range of challenging subtraction and addition questions. In the afternoon we used our sculpting techniques to create Canopic jars and our artistic skills to create Cartouches using hieroglyphics symbols.

    No because, only pharaohs and noble men were able to get mummified. This is because, getting mummified was a very expensive and long process for the Ancient Egyptions. The mummification process took about 70 days!!!

  9. Egyptian day was soooooo fun because we made Canopic jars and did 3 different activities such as โ€ฆโ€ฆ.
    Going outside and writing the hieroglyphs numbers which chalk and we did hieroglyphics in numbers and we did a game about hieroglyphs and making Canopic jars. But the mostbfun thing was making one person on our table a mummy with toilet paper.
