Mummies awakened and artefacts identified on Year 3 Egyptian Day

Year 3 became archaeologists for a day and discovered mummies in October, as they celebrated Egyptian Day with a visit from Sir Teachalot.

The intrepid teacher transported the year 3 pupils back in time to learn all about Ancient Egypt. The children were adorned in some brilliantly imaginative costumes and had clearly been working very hard in Art lessons to make their headdresses and neck collars look so authentic. 

The children were taught all about life as an archaeologist, they discovered why the River Nile was so important and they also learned about pyramids - including how to rob one! One of the most exciting activities however, was learning all about mummification, with one lucky student even being dressed up as a mummy. The pupils then finished the day with a life-sized game of 'Senet', an Egyptian board game that ensured the day finished on a high!
