The Year 5 and 6 children learnt about the Ancient Egyptians during this term. They researched facts about the many Gods, identified how important the Egyptian hierarchy was and had a go at writing using hieroglyphics. They also went to Weston Park Museum in Sheffield where they took part in an activity session about mummification and were able to see and handle artefacts from the Ancient Egyptian period. They also were able to contrast uses of the River Nile in the past with its current use.
They also began to learn to play the ‘Gockenspiel’.
