Welcome to Topaz Class, Year 3!
Our Topic this term is all about:
The Ancient Egyptains
We kicked off our new topic by immersing ourselves in the world of Ancient Egypt for an Ancient Egyptian day!
During the day the children had the opportunity to visit an Ancient Egyptian market-place of activities including: making Ankh models out of clay, carving scarab beetles into soap, creating pharaoh headdresses, painting our faces, building pyramids from nets and practising our skills as scribes by writing hieroglyphics onto ‘papyrus’. On top of this the children also enjoyed taking on the roles of pharaohs and slaves to enjoy an entertaining Ancient Egyptian feast.
Carrying on from this the children will be using their historical, computing and DT skills to inquire further into the life of the Ancient Egyptians this half term. This will include creating their own 3D Egyptian boxes, exploring different nets and thinking about different joins and lids as well as selecting and researching a key question to present in a powerpoint.
We are also looking forward to continuing our investigations at The Fitzwilliam Museum on Tuesday 21st March.
